Wells Fargo in the Community

We’re taking action beyond the bank and our business – volunteering in our communities, and partnering with leading organizations nationally to improve our environment.

Where We're Making a Difference

The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Our solar and wind portfolios have produced 61,800 gigawatt-hours of electricity, enough to displace the
release of 43.5 million tons of CO2. And because these renewable energy sources don’t require water for cooling, some 6.1 billion gallons of water have been saved. For our nation, that means projects owned in whole or in part by Wells Fargo produced 7.4 percent of US renewable energy generation in 2012.
