This particular wind farm is just one of many more clean energy initiatives that are in the pipeline for Amazon. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has estimated that 40% of their infrastructure will be powered by renewable energy sources such as wind by the end of 2016 with an end goal of being 100% renewable.
The Scurry County, Texas farm is scheduled to begin operation in late 2017 and will produce 1,000,000 megawatt hours of electricity each and every year. That's enough to power 90,000 homes.
It makes the Polegate Wind Farm sound minuscule in comparison; I mean it is, but it is still nice to see renewable energy solutions sprouting up all over the place at an ever increasing pace.
