Tomahawk, WI 11/08/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has joined the list of only few companies that have decided to heavily invest in renewable energy. The list only comprises of elite companies such as Wal-Mart, Ikea and Google as Microsoft tries to power one of its largest Data centers. This move could be beneficial to the company as it will essentially result in reduced cost of running the business through reduction of power bills. Microsoft has already started the investment by committing a 20 year clean energy purchase plan from one of Texas largest wind farm which has an output capacity of 110MW. The Construction of the wind farm that is being carried in Texas will come to a full conclusion in 2015. This is a viable move as the cost of 1MW/h has declined from a high of $70 in 2009 to a low of $40 this year alone. This essentially means millions of savings for the company in the coming years.

 Over the past few years, big companies such as Microsoft have been under immense pressure to reduce their carbon emission into the atmosphere by utilizing more reliable clean energy systems. The current move by Microsoft is one of the many as it tries to maintain its reputation as one of the major environment companies in the world. The biggest companies in the world have been receiving backlashes from authorities as they seem not to be doing much in an effort of reverting global warming. It has already been surveyed that companies which engage in clean energy systems always set themselves for huge financial savings through the reduction of unnecessary power bills. The cost of clean energy systems has reduced over the past years thus making it an extremely viable venture for any Company like Microsoft planning to initiate installations.

 Microsoft which is a world leader in Software development has already rolled out plans to select its next CEO from a list of 5 possible candidates. The lists of people who are rumored to be in line to replace the retiring current CEO Steve Balmer include Ford CEO Alan Mulally. The other four will essentially come from internal candidates currently working in the company. Mulally still maintains the upper hand in succeeding Steve Balmer as he comes with lots of experience in the corporate world. The internal candidates from which the CEO might be chosen include current Nokia CEO Stephen Elop considering Nokia is now part of Microsoft after the acquisition. Elop currently holds the position of Microsoft vice president for devices and services business unit.

Tony Bates is the other guy with a good chance of being selected as he is currently an executive VP for the company’s business development division. The last front runner is Satya Nadella who currently holds the position of VP for cloud and enterprise group at Microsoft. Microsoft is a complex organization which needs somebody who can take the company to another new level with its cloud and services business. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has already constituted a committee led by independent director John Thompson and founder Bill Gates to direct the whole process.
