Amazon Announces Mississippi Solar Project as One of 3 Initial US Locations

Amazon has become the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in the United States, the company said after announcing 14 new projects in North America and Europe. The projects will bring the company’s investments to 10 gigawatts of electricity, or enough power for 2.5 million U.S. homes.

“We’re driving hard to fulfill The Climate Pledge—our commitment to reach net-zero carbon by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “Our investments in wind and solar energy in the U.S. and around the world send a signal that investing in green technologies is the right thing to do for the planet and citizens—as well as for the long-term success of businesses of all sizes across all industries everywhere.”
