The AES Corporation announced a 20-year agreement with Microsoft to provide renewable energy to its data centers in California.
The agreement expands upon prior renewable energy agreements between the two companies
"Microsoft, one of the world's largest purchasers of renewable energy, will use this highly customized agreement to partially match their load at their California-based data centers," AES said
AES will source the energy from a portfolio of 110 MW AC solar and 55 MW, 4-hour storage projects in the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) region.
"Working in tandem with Microsoft, we co-created a scalable 24/7 carbon-free solution to power its data centers in Virginia, and we are now proud to move forward on another innovative renewable energy supply structure in California," said Andrés Gluski, AES President and CEO
