Amazon Backs Renewables Projects on Path to 100% Clean Power

  • Company backing three new projects for total 265MW of capacity
  • Amazon targets getting all its power from clean energy by 2030

Amazon.com Inc will invest in three new wind and solar projects as it moves toward a goal of meeting 80% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2024, and 100% by 2030.

The company has entered the U.K.’s largest corporate wind power purchase agreement as part of its backing for the 50-megawatt Amazon Wind Farm on the Kintyre Peninsula of Scotland, it said in a statement. Amazon also announced solar projects in North Carolina and Virginia with a combined generating capacity of 215 megawatts.
