Amazon Battles Google for Renewable Energy Crown

Amazon and Google are the top corporate buyers of U.S. wind and solar.

Companies are making bold commitments to renewable energy in the U.S., agreeing to buy 1.9 gigawatts of clean power this year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

That was on display in a video tweeted Thursday by Amazon.com Inc. Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos, as he christened the 253-megawatt Amazon Wind Farm Texas in Scurry County.
