Bloomberg began investigating renewable energy projects in 2008; our first project, a 1.8 megawatt (MW) solar installation in New Jersey, began providing us with energy in 2012. In 2018, we obtained energy from six on- and off-site solar and wind sites. Our newest installation, a 20MW wind farm in Arkwright, New York, started providing us with energy in October 2018.
Laying the Groundwork for Low-Carbon Sustainable Development and Entrepreneurship
VMware pioneers solutions that help build a low-carbon economy that’s radically more efficient. By creating advanced technology, we break down barriers to enable low-carbon growth with the potential to transform how businesses, governments and communities meet their energy needs. Our long-term focus is changing the world’s relationship with energy and how we use it. That starts with creating solutions that reduce carbon emissions at system, project and local levels and finding ways to bridge all three.
