Amazon announces plans to purchase 3.4 GW of solar and wind capacity

As the Renewable Energy World writes, Amazon has recently 3.4 GW of solar and wind capacity.

The C3 Take

  • This deal makes Amazon the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy in the world.
  • Involved in the deal, in which Acciona will be providing nearly 1.5 Gigawatts of energy to Amazon, are four new photovoltaic plants in Illinois, Kentucky, and Ohio.
  • Through meaningful steps such as this, Amazon is fulfilling its net-zero goals.

“In total, Amazon announced 26 new utility-scale wind and solar energy projects totaling 3.4 gigawatts (GW) of electricity production capacity, bringing its investment in renewable energy in 2020 to 35 projects and more than 4 GW of capacity — the largest corporate investment in renewable energy in a single year, according to the company. These new projects will make Amazon the largest-ever corporate purchaser of renewable energy, it added.”
