Amazon Plans Wind Farm in Paulding County

PAULDING, Ohio (AP) — Amazon plans to develop a wind farm to help power a $1 billion project to build three data centers in central Ohio for its web services subsidiary.

The Blade newspaper reports (bit.ly/1Sxc3Rg) the 48 wind turbines are expected to be built in Paulding County in northwest Ohio and will generate up to 100 megawatts of electricity.

The company has announced that it will build three data centers near Columbus to provide cloud storage, database and analytic services through Amazon Web Services. Amazon said in November that it will also open two fulfillment centers totaling more than 1.8 million square feet. The two centers will employ about 2,000 people.

Amazon hasn't said when construction will start, but plans to have the site running by May 2017.
