Swedish wind to power Google data center
Google says it has entered into a ten year agreement with a Swedish wind farm developer to power a data center in Finland.
The search giant says it will buy the entire electrical output from a new wind farm to be operated by O2 in Maevaara near Pajala, in northern Sweden.
The power will be used to run a new Google data center in Hamina in southern Finland.
The wind farm, which will be operational in 2015, will have 24 wind turbines, with a total capacity of 73 megawatts.
