SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle-based, Inc. has signed agreements to purchase energy from 26 wind and solar projects around the world, claiming it is now the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy. The Seattle Times reported that the deal moves the e-commerce giant five years closer to its goal of powering all of its operations with renewable energy. CEO Jeff Bezos said they are on a path to running 100% of their business on renewable energy by 2025. The newly purchased projects are located in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Sweden, the U.K. and the U.S. and have the capacity to produce 3.4 gigawatts of electricity. The cost of the projects is unclear.
