Renewable energy

In 2017, we built our first solar power plant. Today, we generate more than twice as much renewable energy than what is required to power Ecosia searches. Our solar plants enable us to feed clean energy back into the grid and help crowd out electricity derived from coal and other fossil fuels. 

Because we generate double the amount of renewable energy that we need, and we plant trees that sequester carbon, each search with Ecosia actually removes 0.5 kg of CO2 from the air, making Ecosia carbon-negative.
