Google to use wind energy to run its Finnish data center

Google continues to invest in clean power internationally, and on Tuesday announced its first contract to buy wind power to provide energy for a data center in Europe.

Google says it plans to buy all of the wind power from a large wind farm that will be built in Northern Sweden, which will be built and operated by Swedish wind farm developer O2.
The wind farm, called Maevaara, will be 72 MW when fully built and is supposed to be fully operational in 2015. Google
