Iron Mountain signs wind power purchase agreement
Iron Mountain Incorporated announced the signing of a wind power purchase agreement that will leverage renewable energy sources to power as much as 30 percent of its North American electricity footprint. That capacity will be sufficient to power all of its Texas operations as well as additional states, providing long-term rate stability and with as much as $1.5M annually in related cost avoidance. When completed in 2017, Iron Mountain's share of the wind farm could produce up to 100,000 megawatt hours per year - the equivalent of nearly one-third its power consumption for North America. Under the agreement, Iron Mountain will purchase 10 percent of the energy produced at the Amazon Wind Farm Texas, a 253-megawatt 110+ turbine wind farm in Scurry County, Texas, developed by Lincoln Clean Energy, a developer, owner and operator of clean power projects with a particular focus on wind and solar power in the United States.
