Microsoft has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for renewable power from a solar farm developed in Texas.
It will buy green electricity from Ørsted’s 430MW Old 300 Solar Centre in Ford Bent County, which is expected to come online in 2022.
It will have the capacity to generate enough electricity to power the equivalent ofaround 74,600 homes annually.
The project, which represents an investment of more than $400 million (£288m), will support Microsoft’s green goals.
Adrian Anderson, Senior Director, Renewable Energy at Microsoft said: “On our journey to 100% renewable energy, we recognise that innovation and collaboration are fundamental in how we fight against climate change. We’re grateful for our collaboration with Ørsted to deliver renewable energy in ERCOT [Electric Reliability Council of Texas] and look forward to continued progress towards a net zero carbon future.”
