Amazon has begun hosting large-scale rooftop solar systems on fulfillment centers across the country. Our goal is to have more than 50 fulfillment centers globally with rooftop solar installed by 2020; 15 sites are planned to be complete by the end of 2017. The solar systems in the initial deployment could generate as much as 41 MW of power.
In 2015, Amazon announced the construction of Amazon Solar Farm US East, Amazon Wind Farm (Fowler Ridge) and Amazon Wind Farm US East. Located in Virginia, Indiana and North Carolina respectively, these new solar and wind farms are expected to generate over 1.3 million megawatt hours (MWH) of power—the equivalent power used by approximately 330,000 European homes in a year.
