Why companies like Google and Walmart are buying so much wind power - The Washington Post
Corporations and other non-utility customers — including some municipalities and universities  — accounted for more than half of the wind power capacity sold through so-called power purchase agreements in 2015, according to the AWEA. The group said that corporate and other non-utility buyers have signed contracts for more than 4,500 megawatts of wind power capacity, or enough to power the equivalent of about 1.2 million American homes.

Why does that matter?

ULX: Beyond Car-Dependent Buildings - Urban Land Magazine
The siting, design, and programming of buildings can encourage or discourage people from using public transit and other alternatives to the automobile. For example, placing housing near grocery stores and other neighborhood-serving retail outlets reduces the need for trips made by car. Giving apartment dwellers handy, secure bike storage makes owning a bike much simpler, and providing affordable housing in prime spots close to multiple transit lines grants access to those who need affordable means of travel the most.
