Green Solar Technologies Founder Comments on Amazon's Announcement for Massive Solar Projects in US and Spain

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Billionaire Founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has recently taken the initiative to move Amazon in a more renewable direction with large scale solar energy projects in Virginia, Illinois, and Spain. These projects will work in addition to the 70 plus renewable energy projects Amazon has around the globe.

The plan for the projects is to create massive solar farms which will be used to power Amazon Web Services data centers and Amazon fulfillment centers with enough power generated to power 67,000 homes (700,000 megawatt-hours of energy per year).

The purpose of the projects, announced Tuesday, is an effort to move the company toward 80 percent renewable energy by 2024, a stepping stone to becoming 100 percent renewable by 2030.

Founder of Green Solar Technologies, Nicki Zvik, commented on last week's announcement, stating, "We at GST are thrilled to see that Amazon is heading down a path of renewable energy, and especially with solar energy. We know that solar is the most abundant source we have to create energy and power our world, and with the state of our environmental issues, to have one of the world's largest corporations switch to solar would be a great achievement for not only Amazon but for the well-being of all of us."

According to Fox Business, Gov. J.B. Pritzger of Illinois was quoted stating, ""As we work to put our state on a path to 100 percent clean and renewable energy, Illinois is proud to have Amazon invest in a major solar project in our state. Addressing climate change will take all of us working together, and leadership from state governments and the business community will demonstrate how we can sustainably power a modern economy and create good-paying jobs."

And Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia said, ""I applaud Amazon for their investment in renewable energy projects in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This solar energy project will generate 80 megawatts of renewable energy, which will help lead to a cleaner and healthier environment."

"As renewable energy still comes with criticism, this is a commendable effort being made by Bezos and the rest of Amazon to push for clean, green energy," Zvik comments. "But there is no denying that solar is the future. Bezos knows it, and soon the rest of the world will be on board as we will someday wonder why we ever wasted so much money polluting our environment with expensive and deadly fossil fuels."

Nicki Zvik is the founder of Green Solar Technologies and Spectrum Properties LLC.
