Amazon announced that it will be launching three solar projects, one of which will be located in Spain, while two others will be in the United States. The American projects will have a combined capacity of 180 MW and produce 400,000MWh of electricity a year. The United State's locations include Lee County, Illinois, and Nothern Virginia. The project in Spain is located in Sevilla, and it will have a capacity of 149MW.
The three solar projects will help Amazon move towards its goal of operating completely on renewable energy by the year 2030, and operating with 80% renewable energy by 2024.
Amazon's sustainability efforts may also help its image with eco-conscious consumers who value corporate climate change action.
