Microsoft is buying solar energy from Singapore rooftops.

Microsoft is buying up solar energy from rooftops across Singapore to power its data centers.

The US company on Thursday announced a deal with Singaporean solar firm Sunseap to purchase all the power generated by a planned rooftop solar project, which will be the largest of its kind in the city-state.

The 20-year agreement is the latest example of major global tech companies seeking to power more of their operations through renewable energy.

Microsoft (MSFT) signed two deals last year to receive electricity from wind energy projects in Ireland and the Netherlands for its data centers in Europe.
