    Salesforce Backs West Virginia Wind Farm

    Heather Clancy, December 21, 2015 (Fortune)

    “…[Cloud software giant Salesforce] tends to lease its data center facilities…[so it negotiated a relatively unusual arrangement called a virtual power purchase agreement with Canadian developer Enbridge that] calls for Salesforce to buy about 125,000 megawatt hours of electricity from the project annually at a fixed price over the next 12 years. That’s more power than Salesforce needed to run its data centers during its 2015 fiscal year…The deal is considered “virtual” because the electricity…will be fed into the local grid, adding to its clean energy capacity…The arrangement is strategic for two big reasons: not only is West Virginia a big coal state, but a substantial portion of Salesforce’s annual energy consumption is tied to its data center in the region…Salesforce didn’t disclose the location of the project but Enbridge [just] paid $200 million for 103-megawatt New Wind Creek project…scheduled to start operations in December 2016…” click here for more
