North America’s renewable energy firm, Invenergy has entered into partnership with Pacific Power, a division of PacifiCorp, to help support the social media giant Facebook’s data center in Prineville, Oregon with renewable energy.

Further, Invenergy will supply 100 MW of solar power from two separate projects located in Crook County, Oregon, near Facebook’s Prineville Data Center.

Moreover, the solar power generated from the company’s Prineville Solar plant, 55 MW, and Millican Solar plant, 45 MW, respectively support a larger arrangement through Pacific Power to match 100 percent of Facebook’s electric use at its data center in Prineville with renewable energy.

Commenting on the development, Invenergy, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer, Jim Shield said, “We are excited that through this partnership with Pacific Power, Invenergy’s solar farms will be helping power economic growth in Prineville, Oregon as well as Facebook’s sustainability goals.”

“This partnership reflects Invenergy’s commitment to local economic investment and sustainability that carries across our work with both utilities and corporate renewable energy purchasers,” Shield added.

“Invenergy’s two new solar projects were a great fit to power our Prineville Data Center and also help us further contribute to the city’s prosperity,” said Peter Freed, Facebook Energy Strategy Manager.

Invenergy is a privately held, full-service energy solutions provider. It has the unique ability to be innovative and flexible when working with corporate customers to solve complex energy challenges.

Meanwhile, both the Prineville and Millican solar facilities of the company are expected to be online in late 2020 and will create approximately 100 jobs at each site during construction.
