Google invests in Atlantic Wind Connection project to light up 1.9 million households in US
Google is escalating up the green path by funding many eco projects. Along with Good Energies, and Marubeni, Google has lately invested in the Atlantic Wind Connection project. This will help shape up a 350-mile power transmission backbone linking wind turbines several miles offshore with sites along the United States East Coast. The costs of the backbone project are estimated to be $5 billion and it stated to power up about 1.9 million households with almost 6,000 megawatts of energy. Though Google is offering 37.5% of the project’s development-stage funding, it is calculated to be just a fraction of what is ultimately required. Trans-Elect, the company that is executing the project, plans to complete it almost a decade later in 2021 by commencing the construction in 2013.
