Yahoo Signs PPA for Wind Energy

October 17, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

windWind farm developer OwnEnergy entered into a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with Yahoo! under which Yahoo will purchase wind power to offset much of its energy usage in the Great Plains region.

OwnEnergy partners with local energy entrepreneurs across the country to develop wind projects. The local partners play an active role in project development and receive a share of project ownership in return.

The trend for corporate purchasers to buy wind from specific wind farms is gaining pace. For instance, last year Google agreed to purchase the entire output of the 240 MW Happy Hereford wind farm outside of Amarillo, Texas.
