Digital Realty Signs Wind Power Agreements

Digital Realty Trust announced multiple renewable energy agreements for powering its U.S. data centers.

The deals include a long-term agreement with E.ON Climate and Renewables North America to procure approximately 400,000 megawatt-hours of wind power annually, which will offset 100% of Digital Realty's U.S. colocation and interconnection energy usage, reducing the company's carbon footprint by approximately 275,000 metric tons per year.

"Now more than ever, the overwhelming demand for real-time data, enhanced agility and scalability for online applications is increasing demand for power consumption within the data center," said A. William Stein, Digital Realty's Chief Executive Officer.  "Digital Realty recognizes the importance of addressing our customers' growing demand for renewably powered data centers, and this agreement serves as another example of our deep commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible business practices."

Digital Realty also posted its Green Bond Use-of-Proceeds Statement, which details the use of the approximately $493 million of net proceeds raised through the issuance of a Green Bond in June 2015.  Digital Realty has allocated the net proceeds to nine projects:
