Amazon opens largest wind farm to date

Friday 16 September 2016 | 07:57 CET | News
Amazon opened 'Amazon Wind Farm Texas,' a new 253-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Scurry County, Texas, that will generate 1 mln megawatt hours (MWh) of wind energy annually, or enough to power almost 90,000 US homes. Amazon Wind Farm Texas will include more than 100 turbines, each with a rotor diameter twice as long as the wingspan of a Boeing 747. Scheduled to open in late 2017, the farm will be the company's largest renewable energy project to date.
