Amazon's urban campus

Several years ago we outgrew our space in Seattle and we made a conscious choice to invest in downtown Seattle—even though it would have been cheaper to move to the suburbs.

Powering a clean future

Amazon's largest wind farm to date is adding more than 1 million megawatt hours of clean energy to the grid each year.

Amazon wind and solar farms

In September 2016, we announced the plan to build our largest wind project to-date, Amazon Wind Farm Texas. A 253-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Scurry County, with more than 100 turbines, the project will generate 1,000,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of wind energy annually – enough to power almost 90,000 U.S. homes.

Our largest wind farm yet: introducing Amazon Wind Farm Texas

Today we announced our largest renewable energy project to date, Amazon Wind Farm Texas. It's the newest renewable energy project in our long-term sustainability efforts across Amazon, which include wind and solar farms, green rooftops, and the District Energy Project—a system we built in Seattle to heat our office buildings with recycled energy.
