Google expects to receive its first wind power from Norway by early September.
The Company also stated that…
We’ll purchase power as soon as the wind farm becomes fully operational, which we expect will take place in early September 2017.
We had exclusive contract for 12 years and they will begin getting the electricity at some point after commercial operations begins,
Google last year signed a 12-year deal to buy 100 percent of the plant’s output. The company, which has four European data centers in Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland, said the wind power will be used to supply one or several of them.
The electricity produced until Google starts receiving the farm’s full capacity, which provide the project’s equity financing, confirmed the first turbine would be ready for production next week and said power sales would start a few days later.
The Tellenes wind farm’s first turbine will begin to generate power by next week.
Google has also bought the future output of a smaller wind farm in Sweden, due to start operation in 2018, bringing the total capacity of its renewable power purchases in Europe to 500 MW.
