T-Mobile Will Move To 100% Renewable Electricity By 2021


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.

To reach its commitment, T-Mobile is going to buy enough wind power annually to account for every unit of electricity that it consumes. It’s also focused on creating new energy from renewable sources. With its 100 percent renewable electricity pledge with RE100, it joins other influential businesses like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Nike who are also working toward the aim goal.
