All of those clean energy buys don’t mandatorily link to the same power grids that the firm is plugged into.
All of it could alter if Microsoft succeeds in its latest goal. By 2030, the firm wants to assure that its clean energy buys are in fact feeding into the local grids where it functions.

As a fraction of that movement, Microsoft has tried plunging its providers in the liquid baths and ocean in order to make them more energy-efficient.
