How HP is Taking Its Texas Data Centers 100% Renewable
by Laurie Guevara-Stone
One of the largest tech companies in the U.S. soon will power its five Texas data centers with 100 percent renewable energy.
Hewlett-Packard (HP) recently announced a 12-year contract to buy 112 megawatts of wind power from a SunEdison wind farm in Texas. The purchase means HP will reach its 2020 operational greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal five years ahead of schedule.
It also is an excellent example of the progress promoted by the Business Renewables Center, an RMI-convened and member-led platform that accelerates corporate procurement of off-site renewable energy by bringing together corporate buyers, project developers and service providers (including founding members HP and SunEdison).
