Amazon Wind Farm Texas will use more than 100 turbines and it is set to open in late 2017. It will be Amazon’s largest renewable energy project to date. Amazon contracted with Lincoln Clean Energy, who will construct, own and operate the new wind farm. Amazon will purchase about 90 percent of the power generated by the wind farm.
“We’re excited to work with the community in Scurry County and Lincoln Clean Energy to generate 1,000,000 MWh of renewable energy each year from West Texas,” said Kara Hurst, director of sustainability, Amazon. “Amazon Wind Farm Texas is our largest renewable energy project to date and the newest milestone in our long-term sustainability efforts across the company.”
