Amazon.com Inc said Wednesday it would add 2.7 gigawatts of clean energy capacity through several new projects as it aims to use 100 percent renewable energy across its entire business by 2025.

Amazon’s renewable energy projects would total 379 after the addition of the 71 new ones and it expects to generate 50,000 gigawatt hours (GWh) of clean energy from its entire portfolio, equivalent to powering 4.6 million American homes per year.

The new projects include three large-scale plants in the Indian state of Rajasthan with a capacity of 420 megawatts (MW), rooftop solar projects in France and Austria and the first solar park in Poland.

Amazon-backed Infinium said Tuesday it would supply the online retail giant with low-carbon electric fuels that would replace the diesel fuel used in the company’s transportation fleet.
