Microsoft to use RNG microgrid for backup power at new San Jose data center

June 15, 2022 |

In Texas, Enchanted Rock has been contracted by Microsoft to develop California’s largest microgrid fully supported by renewable natural gas which will provide Microsoft’s San Jose data center with back-up power to ensure continuous operations.

Power for the microgrid will be supplied by net-zero carbon RNG, injected upstream into the gas pipeline to offset the use of fossil gas. Enchanted Rock sources RNG captured from facilities that emit methane such as food waste and agricultural operations, making it part of the circular economy with neutral or negative carbon intensity.
