T-Mobile makes large wind power investment

Ahead of Earth Day 2017, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) has announced magenta is going green with the largest wind power investment ever by a US wireless company, the company said.

The Un-carrier signed a long-term agreement for up to 160 MW from the new Red Dirt wind project in Oklahoma.

This arrangement will help T-Mobile increase efficiencies and power the company´s operations across the US, including retail stores, call centers and network operations.

The 300 MW Red Dirt wind project is owned and will be operated by Enel Green Power North America, Inc. (“EGPNA”) and will be one of EGPNA´s largest wind farms in Oklahoma. It is expected to generate approximately 1,200 GWh of renewable energy annually — equivalent to the energy consumption needs of more than 97,000 US households.

Construction of the Red Dirt wind project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.

T-Mobile US delivers wireless experiences to 71.5 million customers. Based in Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile US provides services through its subsidiaries and operates its flagship brands, T-Mobile and MetroPCS.
