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. Less than a year later, the company has made good on its commitment with the Google Solar Panel Project. As of June 2007, Google has installed over 90% of the 9,212 solar panels that comprise the 1,600-kilowatt project.
Google Solar Panel Project: Power Estimates
The Google Solar Panel Project installation is projected to produce enough electricity for approximately 1,000 California homes or 30% of Google’s peak electricity demand in their solar-powered buildings at their Mountain View, CA headquarters. In just the last 24 hours, Google produced 6,783 kilowatt-hours of electricity from the sun. Hopefully, more companies follow Google’s example and demonstrate a commitment to clean and renewable energy solutions.
