Google Follow Up Solar Power Investment by Spending on Wind Farm
Google have continued their moves into the clean tech market by spending more than £60 million on the world’s largest wind farm. The news comes not long after the company spent another vast sum on solar powered technology based in the Mojave desert.
The company appears to be looking to work on electric vehicle infrastructure after it was announced that they would partner with the US Energy Department on the deal. They will be looking to set up more electric car charging stations in the US.
The search engine giant will also partner with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to use Google Maps as a method of locating and identifying all charging stations, which will then be placed into a massive database that users can utilise.
The investment will go to the 845-megawatt Shepherds Flat Wind Farm that is currently under construction in California.
