T-Mobile today announced that it’s going to move to 100 percent Renewable Electricity by 2021. Magenta has committed to going green by joining the RE100, a collaborative global initiative that unites more than 100 influential businesses that are committed to 100 percent renewable electricity. T-Mobile now has renewable energy as a stated goal and while some might believe that a public commitment to this end is more of a publicity stunt, at least a move to renewable energy does end up benefitting the environment in the long term.
T-Mobile has revealed today that it has finalized a contract for 160 MWs from Infinity Renewables’ Solomon Forks Wind Project in Kansas. Power generation at this facility is expected to begin early next year. This is T-Mobile’s second major wind power project.
The Red Forks Wind Power Project in Oklahoma is its first, it went online in December last year. The two plants will generate a combined 320 MWs for T-Mobile which will be enough to meet an estimated 60 percent of its total energy needs nationwide.
