Microsoft Announces Massive Wind Energy Deal

On Thursday, Microsoft Corp. announced its second European wind project in the Netherlands with Vattenfall, one of Europe’s largest electricity and heat retail and producers. Microsoft will purchase 100 percent of the wind energy generated from a repowered and expanded wind farm that is adjacent to its local datacenter operations in the Netherlands. The 180-megawatt wind farm will be constructed and operated by Nuon, part of Vattenfall in the Wieringermeer Polder, near Amsterdam.
