Salesforce signs agreement for 24MW of Texas wind farm energy

Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) is doubling down on its renewable energy commitments by signing a second energy agreement, this time for 24 megawatts (MW) of a new wind farm in Texas, the company said.

The electricity generated under the 12-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) is expected to be 102,000 megawatt hours annually.

This energy agreement comes on the heels of the company´s first VPPA for 40 MW of a new wind farm in West Virginia that is expected to generate 125,000 megawatt hours of wind energy annually.

Together, the two agreements are expected to generate more electricity than Salesforce´s global electricity use in its full fiscal year 2015. Both the Texas and the West Virginia wind farms are scheduled to be operational in December 2016.
