T-Mobile is making a serious commitment into renewable energy for their future. The wireless carrier has announced that they will be fully powered by sustainable sources by 2021. How? Part of it will come from a second wind farm in Kansas that the company is going to invest in. They’ll be joining others in the RE100 group that’s committed to renewable power.
Calling themselves the “Un-carrier” for not requiring contracts to use their mobile service, T-Mobile has completed a new contract support Infinity Renewables’ Solomon Forks Wind Project in Kansas. It’ll feature a capacity of 160 megawatts and it’s expected to be online in 2019.
The mobile service supported another wind farm in Oklahoma, called the Red Forks Wind Power Project. That was also at a capacity of 160 megawatts. In total, T-Mobile can expect to generate 60 percent of their energy needs from these renewable sources alone.
