Jerry Hunter, Vice President of Infrastructure at Amazon Web Services, said in a statement that Wind Farm US East will bringing the company a step further to surpassing their 40 percent renewable goal by the end of 2016.
"We're far from being done. We'll continue pursuing projects that deliver clean energy to the various energy grids that serve AWS data centers, we'll continue working with our power providers to increase their renewable energy quotient, and we'll continue to strongly encourage our partners in government to extend the tax incentives that make it more viable for renewable projects to get off the ground."
Other tech giants too have also embarked on their own renewable energy projects. In February, Apple announced its plans to spend 1.7 billion euros ($1.9 billion) on building and operating two data centers in Europe that would be solely powered on renewable energy.
Google too stated in June that they would convert a coal-fired power plant in Alabama into a data center, which would incorporate "state-of-the-art energy efficiency technologies."
AWS hope to complete this wind farm and have it running by December 2016 and will be North Carolina's "first utility-scale wind farm."
