Computer firm announces green energy plans

Computer firm announces green energy plans
Renewable energy will be purchased to power the Texas headquarters of computer firm Dell, it has been reported.

The company - which is though to be the second-largest manufacturer of personal computers in the world - announced on Wednesday that the 2.1 million-square foot building will operate using renewable power, including electricity generated by landfill gases and windfarms.

Calling green energy a "predictable and stable" source for the firm, Dane Parker, director of global environment, health and safely for Dell, added that by the end of its three-year renewable energy contract, the firm expects prices of gas-generated energy to be higher than that produced by renewable means.

The Dallas News reported around 40 percent of energy provided to the computer company will come from a waste management landfill site in Austin, Texas, while the remaining power will be wind-generated.

Meanwhile, the Calgary Herald reported that the firm also intends to make all its facilities carbon-neutral by the end of the year.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18536681-ADNFCR
