Once the wind farms come online, the additional capacity will help Google reach its goal of purchasing enough renewable energy to match its energy consumption for global operations.
Windfarms like this can go a long way in weaning the world off the fatal addiction to fossil fuels.
Google’s funding will be used to set up renewable energy certification programs through the Center for Resource Solutions, starting in Taiwan.
Invenergy announced that it has signed a 225 MW wind power purchase agreement (PPA) with Google to provide the tech giant with renewable energy to help support its data center operations.
Thanks to wind energy, multinational software giant SAP has increased its use of renewable energy from 43% in 2013 to 100% in 2014.
The Power Purchase Agreement will provide Google with the full output of the 201 megawatt (MW) Great Western Wind Project located in Woodward and Ellis counties near the base of the Oklahoma panhandle.
