Element Critical, a leading provider of data center solutions, has inked a power purchase agreement with NextEra Energy Resources, making its Houston and Austin co-location data centers powered by 100% renewable energy.
Under the deal with a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resource, Element Critical will procure green power from an ERCOT-connected, Texas-based wind plant.
“NextEra Energy Resources has played an important role in assisting our teams and driving our renewable energy activities,” Element Critical CEO Ken Parent remarked. “We're delighted to launch this first endeavor as part of our objective to have 100% carbon offsets in place across our entire data center portfolio by 2025.”
“However, our corporate commitment goes beyond PPAs. Our ultimate goal is to acquire and generate 100% zero-carbon energy by 2030, using a combination of onsite production projects and direct utility provided 100% green energy.”
