Google Solar Panel Project
In the last 24 hours, Google produced 9,786 kilowatt-hours of electricity from the sun.
In October 2006, Google announced a commitment to [tag]solar[/tag] 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 [tag]solar panels[/tag] that comprise the 1,600 kilowatt project. Panels cover the rooftops of eight buildings and two newly constructed solar carports at the Googleplex. Watch the fly-over video of the buildings!
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.
