In the midst of Google's Android growth, Chrome explosion, Chromebook entries and Fiber roll-outs, it's actually easy to forget that Google does other things as well. There's search, Glass, and energy. Yes, energy. Google has been dabbling in energy for some time now, which makes sense given the tremendous amount of power that it uses worldwide. This week, the company announced an expansion of options for companies to buy renewable energy.


To date, Google has committed more than $1 billion to renewable energy project investments, signed agreements to procure wind power near our data centers, and installed solar panels at our corporate headquarters. To go along with that, Google is expanding its Lenoir, N.C. data center, with Duke Energy pledging the "develop a new program for large companies like Google who want to buy renewable power for their operations." The plan should be filed within 3 months.

Google seems committed to finding cost-effective rewnewable energy projects, which sure is good -- because we sure aren't seeing many other entities take it upon themselves.

I have hope that Google figures out how to make better nuclear reactors and/or takes a page from Marvel and builds the arc reactor!

 

Ok maybe not but atleast they are doing something instead of waiting on someone else to figure it out.
