Amazon wind and solar farms

Amazon is committed to using 100% renewable energy across our global infrastructure. In April, we announced our latest milestone – three new wind farms in Ireland, Sweden, and the United States. In 2018, AWS exceeded 50% renewable energy usage, and these three projects will deliver wind-generated energy that will total over 229 megawatts (MW) of power, with expected generation of over 670,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually.
