“Apple, Akamai, Etsy and Swiss Re get together to buy clean power”

"If you study lists enumerating corporate contracts to buy renewable energy, one thing becomes clear very quickly — it’s tough to find a deal for less than 20 megawatts of capacity, a factor that has discouraged many would-be buyers with loads far less than that amount. The smallest power purchase agreement listed on the GreenBiz quarterly tracker for Q2, for example, was a 17 MW transaction by media organization Bloomberg. Indeed, it’s tough to find an arrangement smaller than the 5-MW contract announced in January between data center company Iron Mountain and Renewable Power Direct."
