The West Texas wind farm will generate one million megawatt hours of wind energy annually, enough energy to power almost 90,000 U.S. homes.

The project will include more than 100 turbines, each with a rotor diameter twice as long as the wingspan of a Boeing 747.

Scheduled to open in late 2017, Amazon Wind Farm Texas will be the company’s largest renewable energy project to date.

Amazon has contracted with Lincoln Clean Energy, which will construct, own, and operate the new wind farm. Amazon will purchase about 90 percent of the power that is generated.
