Salesforce.com Buys Texas Wind Power in Second Clean Energy Deal

  • Deals help company reach goal of using 100% renewable energy
  • CFO Mark Hawkins says buying renewables is `good econonomics'

Salesforce.com Inc. agreed to buy 24 megawatts of capacity from a wind farm that EDF Renewable Energy is developing in Texas, a deal that puts the software company on track to meeting its goal of getting all its energy from renewable sources.

Salesforce.com has a 12-year contract to purchase the power from the Salt Fork wind project, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, the San Francisco-based company said in a statement Thursday. The deal follows a December agreement to buy 40 megawatts of capacity from a West Virginia wind farm.
