If you look at the three Hyper-Scale providers, AWS, Azure and Google. All three are moving to, have already moved to 100% renewable energy to power their data centres.

It absolutely makes sense to centralise compute to help the environment and this is a big plus point for Cloud Computing, not a detractor.
