Google Signs Up to Buy 407 Megawatts of Buffett’s Wind Power

NEW YORK -- Google Inc. agreed to buy 407 megawatts of wind power from Warren Buffett’s MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co., the technology company’s largest deal to date for renewable energy.

The capacity will power Google’s Council Bluffs, Iowa, data center, according to a statement from Des Moines-based MidAmerican today. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Google, along with Facebook Inc., Apple Inc., Intel Corp. and other companies, are buying buying power from renewable energy projects to curb greenhouse-gas emissions. Google has agreed to buy more than a gigawatt of clean power. Corporate data centers are significant consumers of electricity.

MidAmerican will provide the capacity from multiple wind farms that are part of its Wind VIII effort to add 1,050 megawatts of wind energy in Iowa by the end of 2015.
