So Google is promoting solar panel energy and in the last 24 hours, produced over 9,906 kilowatt-hours from solar panels installed at one of its California campuses:
In the last 24 hours, Google produced 9,906 kilowatt-hours of electricity from the sun.
In October 2006, Google announced a commitment to solar energy production and launched the largest solar panel installation to date on a corporate campus in the United States. Google has installed over 90% of the 9,212 solar panels that comprise the 1,600 kilowatt project. Panels cover the rooftops of eight buildings and two newly constructed solar carports at the Googleplex (check out this fly-over video).
This installation is projected to produce enough electricity for approximately 1,000 California homes or 30% of Google’s peak electricity demand in our solar powered buildings at our Mountain View, CA headquarters.
We built this page to monitor and share the day to day production of clean, renewable energy from our very own rooftops. Keep checking in to see how we’re doing. We think the future looks bright!
Very cool. I am very much a fan of creating green-collar jobs, so I’m a big advocate of companies of all sorts moving in this direction. Thumbs up!
