Salesforce, a cloud computing company headquartered in San Francisco, has signed a 12-year virtual power purchase agreement for 40 MW from an unidentified West Virginia wind project.

The company says the wind project is expected to be operational by December 2016 and will deliver clean energy to the same regional electricity grid that currently powers the majority of Salesforce's data center load.

This announcement comes on the heels of Salesforce's recent commitments to achieve net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions by 2050 and eventually power 100% of its global operations with renewable energy.

Mark Hawkins, chief financial officer of Salesforce, says this new agreement represents the company's "biggest step yet" toward reaching its renewable energy goal.
