Dec 02, 2021 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Amazon is launching a 70-megawatt solar farm in Burke County - the first of its kind in Georgia. This move is part of a wider initiative, which will see the giant bring 18 new wind and solar projects online for an entirely renewable-powered company by 2025.

The other projects include one in Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Arizona, adding a total of 1 gigawatt of power, and will power both Amazon's data centers and its offices.

According to Amazon, the company now has 274 renewable energy projects across the world.

The solar farm is expected to come online in 2023.
