Visa announces agreement with MP2 Energy to power its largest data center with 100% renewable energy
Visa, a leading global payments technology company, announced an agreement with MP2 Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell Energy North America, to power its largest data center with 100% renewable energy for five years, beginning in 2023. The Virginia-based data center accounts for one-third of Visa’s total global energy usage.
This agreement reflects Visa’s latest step towards its goal of transitioning to 100% renewable electricity by 2030, and it supports the addition of renewable electricity capacity to the grid from new solar projects. MP2 Energy will procure renewable electricity from these new solar projects, which Visa expects to begin using in February 2023.
