Google signed a wind power purchase agreement with Invenergy

Google is a big fan of wind power, wind energy and wind farms

 
Google has signed yet another wind power purchase agreement (PPA), this time with Invenergy.
 
The PPA is for 225MW of electricity which is meant to support Google’s data center operations. This agreement is one of six PPAs made recently for a total of 842MW of energy across three countries. It means that Google has almost doubled the amount of renewable energy that supports their data centers across the globe.
 
Many large organizations like Google have corporate sustainability goals, making it easier for companies like Invenergy to partner with PPAs in order to support these initiatives. Currently, Invenergy provides 570MW of wind power through various power purchase agreements.
 
Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Invenergy, Craig Gordon said:
 
“We are thrilled to bring our innovation in energy to Google, a company famous for their innovation in technology. Their commitment to using renewable energy sources to power their data centers represents a significant change in the way big corporations are thinking about sustainability and we are proud to be a part of those efforts.”
 
According to the press release:
 
The agreement with Google includes the sale of wind energy from the Bethel Wind Energy Facility located in Texas. Invenergy will provide 225 MW of capacity resulting in approximately 965,000MWh of renewable energy annually generated in Texas and delivered into the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a regional electricity grid. With the addition of Bethel, Invenergy will operate more than 1,700 MW of power plants in the state.
