Microsoft Agrees To Buy Electric Power From Potter County Wind Farm


It’s been a banner week for corporate purchasers. First, Iron Mountain, Microsoft and Walmart announced power purchase agreements (PPA) with five wind projects across the country. On top of that exciting news, Microsoft also announced a new and innovative solution for corporate purchasers called the volume firming agreement (VFA), which will help large companies power even more of their operations using wind.

The three companies announced a combined 468 megawatts (MW) in PPAs across five wind projects this week:

  • Iron Mountain signed a 145 MW PPA with the Pretty Prairie Wind Farm in Reno County, Kan.
  • Microsoft signed a 90 MW PPA with the Big Level Wind Project in Potter County, Pa.
  • Walmart signed three contracts, 
The five wind projects are all expected to be operational by the end of 2020.

Maybe you should explain this. There is no way they themselves can actually use the election from these locations. Are they throwing money at something for a tax write off and marketing stunt? My take is they pay for wind power somewhere that it shouldn’t economically be in the first place?

The only reason for any investment in wind is for tax incentives and carbon credits. Wind power does not work now and has never worked in the past. White knoll and dodge hollow will never be the same. Destroyed forever!!!
