Google inks deal to purchase 114 megawatts of wind energy generated power
Google is all set to have its subsidiary powered by the power of the wind. Google Energy, created to enable the company buy wholesale energy, has signed the deal with the NextEra Energy Resources Story County II wind farm in Iowa, for 20 years buying 114 megawatts of power. Steps like these taken by Google helps make it a lot more carbon neutral, erasing out its footprint. The company plans to minimize power consumption to the least and power up its facilities with renewable energy. Google’s Mountain View, CA facility has the largest corporate solar installation. Google also plans to buy carbon offsets to do away with emissions on a wider scale.
Google hopes that this will be a living and well-functioning example for other corporate houses around the world to go green and will have its contract take effect beginning on the 30th of July 2010. Searches on the internet go greener with Google’s green initiatives!
