Google Solar Panel Project

All of us know that saving the energy is equivalent to generating the new energy. What google has done till now and is continue to do is really appreciative. Most of us know the Google just as a search engine provider. But the effort Google is putting for its Solar Panel Project for saving the energy is amazing. Hope this will open the eyes of other software companies.

In the last 24 hours, Google produced 9,904 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 SketchUp 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.
