GOOGLE AND APEX CLEAN ENERGY TO ADVANCE TIMBERMILL WIND PROJECT
Apex Clean Energy and Google announced a power purchase agreement—the companies’ first—for the full 189 MW capacity of Timbermill Wind, to be constructed in North Carolina.
Timbermill Wind will support Google’s 2030 commitment to powering its operations with carbon-free energy around the clock. The PPA will contribute to the clean energy needs of the company’s data centers on the PJM grid. Google, in its third decade of climate action, has matched its annual electricity consumption with 100 percent renewable energy since 2017.
In addition to generating tangible environmental benefits, including the contribution of approximately $190,000 to nearby conservation efforts, Timbermill Wind will inject significant local economic benefits as Chowan County’s largest taxpayer. The project will create approximately $33 million in tax revenue for the community, more than 150 jobs during construction, and a new source of income for local farmers and landowners.
Apex Clean Energy was founded with a singular focus: to accelerate the shift to clean energy. Through origination, construction, and operation of utility-scale wind, solar, and storage facilities, distributed energy resources, and green fuel technologies, Apex is expanding the renewable frontier across North America.
