Amazon.com Inc. on Wednesday said it is expanding its renewable-energy portfolio with 2.7 gigawatts of clean-energy capacity across 71 new projects around the world.

The Seattle online retail giant said the work includes a solar farm in Brazil, marking its first renewable-energy project in South America, as well as its first solar farms in India and Poland.

Amazon said it now has 379 renewable-energy projects across 21 countries, representing 18.5 gigawatts of capacity, adding that its portfolio, when fully operational, will generate the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power 4.6 million U.S. homes a year.

Amazon, which had reached 85% renewable energy across its business by the end of last year, said it is on a path to reach 100% by 2025.
