Amazon adds more renewable power, ranking it as largest wind and solar user in the world

Rachel Koning Beals of MarketWatch reports that Amazon is adding more renewable power, making it the largest wind and solar user in the world.

The C3 Take
  • Amazon has recently added 14 new renewable energy projects, making it the largest renewable energy user in the world.
  • The company is claiming that it will use 100% renewable energy to power its operations by 2025, five years earlier than the original target of 2050.
  • Free markets are creating a cleaner environment.

“The delivery giant now has 232 energy projects around the world, the equivalent of powering 2.5 million U.S. homes. The 11 U.S. projects include Amazon’s first solar projects in Arkansas, Mississippi and Pennsylvania, plus additional projects in Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. In total, Amazon has enabled more than 6 GW of renewable energy in the U.S. through 54 projects.”
