Search engine firm Yahoo has penned a deal to power its operations with wind energy, according to a wind developer in the US.

The long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) will offset “much” of Yahoo’s energy use in the Great Plains region.

Chris Page, Global Director, Energy and Sustainability Strategy at Yahoo said: “Driving the development of cleaner and renewable sources of power is an important piece of our sustainability strategy. We’re proud to partner with OwnEnergy in a community-based project that increases the amount of clean, sustainable energy in the Great Plains region.”

Jacob Susman, Founder and CEO of OwnEnergy added: “[Our] business model taps into the entrepreneurial spirit of farmers, ranchers and landowners across the United States, providing them with economic opportunities, operational resources and industry expertise necessary to develop a source of clean, renewable energy.”
