Facebook Migrates to Solar Energy for Oregon Data Centers

Jul 19, 2018 | Posted by admin

Facebook and Pacific Power said they are joining up to construct solar projects that will generate energy to offset what Facebook uses at its data centers in Prineville, Oregon.

The solar projects, two near Prineville and four in Utah, expect to produce 437 megawatts of power when finished by the conclusion of 2020. The solar power for Facebook’s Prineville campus is almost equivalent to the energy use of 100,000 Northwest homes. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced at an event, “This partnership bolsters Prineville’s 21st century model for a small town. With projects like these, we continue to demonstrate that Oregon is ready for the clean energy economy of the future.”
