Amazon plans to build a second wind farm in Ohio
KENTON, Ohio (AP) — Amazon is planning to build a second wind farm in Ohio to help power three new data centers in the state.
The e-commerce retail giant says it will develop the wind farm in Hardin County and that it should be making electricity by the end of next year.
Amazon already is building a wind farm in Paulding County.
Hardin County officials in northwest Ohio say the newly announced project will be around $300 million.
Amazon’s three data centers near Columbus will provide cloud storage, database and analytic services.
Its goal is to power its cloud services entirely with renewable energy.
