Google adds new wind in Eolus PPA

Internet giant Google is venturing further into the renewable energy business, by signing a ten-year power purchase agreement with Nordic developer Eolus Vind.

Under the deal, Google starting in early 2015 will buy electricity generated by 29 turbines from four southern Swedish wind farms that have a combined capacity of 59MW, Eolus Vind told Recharge.

The four wind farms are Skalleberg in Hjo municipalitiy, Mungseröd in Tanum, Ramsnäs in Laxå municipality and Alered in Falkenberg municipality. The wind parks will use 23 Vestas V100-1.8MW turbines, four of its V112-3.3MW machines, and two of its V90-2.0 models.

Google will supply its Finnish data center with electricity from the Swedish wind parks.
