Microsoft now joins the trend of large technology companies turning to clean energy.

Brad Smith, Microsoft’s President and Chief Legal Officer in a blog release, said that the company has taken an important step towards sustainability.

This was after the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission approved a new contract between Microsoft and Puget Sound Energy. This contract enables Microsoft to buy 100 percent carbon-free energy from the open market to power most of its Puget Sound operations in Washington state.

Microsoft commits to buying renewable energy at levels substantially higher than Washington state law. Going as far as to add penalties if the company fails.
