In the past Amazon has been known for their efforts towards the environment as they have invested a lot of company time and resources towards wind turbine energy production. Now, Amazon have gone green by installing solar panels to 15 of their warehouses. In the future, they aim towards a bigger and better environment by having 50 warehouses converted to be more energy efficient and using renewable energy by 2020.
On average homes consume power at a rate of 1.2 kilowatts so with the new solar installation, Amazon would be able to generate enough power to run around 34,000 homes. Dave Clark, the senior vice president of worldwide operations states “This is good for the environment, our business and our customers. By diversifying our energy portfolio, we can keep business costs low and pass along further savings to customers,”
