The 80-megawatt PV plant is designed to power 15,000 US homes each year. Amazon’s structure will power its data centers as the company hopes to run exclusively on solar energy in the near future.
The company has yet to give details on how much it will cost to build. Amazon’s solar farm is expected to be up and running by 2016.
The company is also funding a wind farm in Benton County, Indiana, which will be launched in January 2016.
