Google Signs for 842 MW of Wind and Solar Power
The commitment, the site says, is for as much as 842 MW of power from six wind and solar facilities, according to the site. The farms are in the United States, Chile and Sweden. The company would not release the value of the contracts. The story says that some of the deals were signed weeks ago, but released to coincide with the COP 21 conference in Paris. The story says that Google now has contracts for 2 GW of renewable energy. It therefore is more than half way to its pledged total of 3.6 GW by 2025.
In July, Google said that it is building a data center in Alabama on the grounds of The Widows Creek coal power plant in Jackson County, which had been schedule to be shut down. It is the company’s 14th data center globally.
