Jeff Bezos smashes a bottle of Champagne while perched on top of a giant windmill

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos posted the following video to his Twitter account on Thursday: 

“Fun day christening Amazon’s latest wind farm,” Bezos wrote on Twitter.

Amazon’s wind- and solar-farm initiatives help power Amazon Web Services and other parts of Amazon with renewable energy. AWS is the backbone of many internet companies and is a huge part of Amazon’s business outside of retail. Amazon’s goal is to reach 100% renewable energy for AWS and all of Amazon using wind and solar power.
