The wind farm was built and is owned by Lincoln Clean Energy, which develops wind and solar projects, and will be operated by the company.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos christens the company's new Texas wind farm. "These projects also support hundreds of jobs and provide tens of millions of dollars of investment in local communities across the country".

Amazon has expressed a goal of eventually running the company's entire operation on sustainable energy. Apple, meanwhile, already powers all of its data centers through renewable energy sources. In this case, though, the electricity is aimed at offsetting the energy demands of the warehouse-sized data centers that power Amazon's cloud-computing unit.
