Wind turbines to power BMW factoryBMW wants to continue with their green reformation by drawing up plans to build a quartet of wind turbines that will see action in powering a factory with enough juice so that it is able to assemble hundreds of vehicles each day – at least that is what auto newspaper Automobilwoche reported. The same report also mentions that the wind farm constructed ought to be able to produce enough energy by the time late 2013, rolls around.

BMW has every intention of turning its Leipzig factory into an example of green energy production, and has kept their fingers crossed to see this as being a milestone, an example that other assembly plants around the world will follow in due time. The Leipzig factory is said to roll out around 200,000 vehicles each day, and armed with a calculator (or having great mental math skills), that averages to around 740 a day. I wonder whether other automobile manufacturers will follow suit or not.
