New York [USA], March 01 (ANI): As part of its goal to use more renewable energy in its datacentres, technology giant Microsoft on Thursday said that it has entered into an agreement with Singapore-based clean energy firm Sunseap.
During the 20-year agreement, Microsoft will buy 100 percent of the renewable energy that the solar project, which has a peak output of 60 megawatts, exports to the grid.
Last year, it made agreements to buy all the energy generated by GE’s new wind farm in County Kerry, Ireland and a wind farm operated by Vattenfall in the Netherlands.
In 2017, the Singaporean government said that it will introduce a carbon tax in 2019 to encourage companies to use renewable energy resources.
