These agreements support the development of these subsidy-free offshore wind farms, Google said.
Additionally, in Italy, Google has signed its first long-term power purchase agreement to support a 47 MW wind project developed by Italian energy company ERG.

The technology company also signed new Polish PPAs for 106 MW of solar generation capacity with GoldenPeaks Capital and two new green energy agreements in Belgium.
“With these power purchase agreements, we are helping to add 11 new onshore wind farms, developed by Aspiravi and Luminus, to the grid, for a total capacity of 84 megawatts,” Google said.
