Google To Install Solar Panels To Help Power The Googleplex

The Google Blog announced that Google’s next ambitious project is to install solar panels on the rooftops of the Googleplex to help power the company on sunny days. Google says they will be placing these 1.6 megawatts of solar photovoltaic panels at their Mountain View headquarters to help offset “approximately 30% of [Google’s] peak electricity consumption at those buildings.” This is supposedly one of the largest, if not the largest installation of solar power by any corporation in the US. Google will be installing about 9,200 solar panels, reports the Associated Press.
