Amazon Takes to the Skies

by | Mar 11, 2015
No, we’re not talking about the Amazon drone delivery service—well, not yet anyway. But Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) has announced that it is partnering with another company to construct and operate a 150 megawatt wind farm. And they’ve decided that Benton County, Indiana is the perfect place to do it.

AWS, an Amazon.com company, offers a cloud-based technology infrastructure platform which performs services including computing, storage, database, analytics, application and deployment. The company already operates a number of datacenters in Indiana and according to Jerry Hunter, vice president of infrastructure at AWS, they have “ongoing expansion plans to support our growing customer base.”

Near the end of 2014, the company announced a long-term commitment to achieving 100 percent renewable energy usage for its global footprint. Currently, the company offers its customers three carbon-neutral regions worldwide. The new wind farm, which the company lists as “Amazon Web Services Wind Farm (Fowler Ridge),” could be active as early as January 2016. The partnering company is Pattern Energy Group LP, a California-based operation.

Annually the farm will generate approximately 500,000 megawatt hours, or the equivalent of the amount used by 46,000 US homes in one year. The energy generated there will be used for “current and future AWS Cloud datacenters,” according to Hunter.
