Views: 540
Microsoft, announced plans to procure,
. . . 60 megawatts of solar energy in Singapore,
Because, we've had other projects,
. . . that have had challenges related to permitting issues, that may put ,
. . . 100% of the output in jeopardy.

Microsoft's outlook is for battery storage, and
. . . pairing renewable energy directly with localized demand,
. . . at facilities around the world.

The build-out,
. . . which will span “hundreds of rooftops across the nation,”
. . . according to Microsoft, is also said to be,
. . . the first rooftop solar portfolio in the country,
. . . focused on serving data center energy consumption.

Microsoft, was forced to look at distributed generation,
. . . because there was simply not enough space,
. . . for utility-scale projects in Singapore.
“We were really limited to just looking at what is available, and
. . . in Singapore it's rooftops, that was the only
. . . clear route we had to get to a material amount of energy.
