Google Tapping Into Wind Power


Delivering results for more than 400 million search queries a day requires a great deal of electricity. 2008 estimates of the power required for Google’s 450,000 servers range upwards of 20 megawatts.
In an effort to further green its electricity sources, Google has announced a purchase agreement with a 114 megawatt wind farm in Iowa.
The 20-year green power purchase agreement commences on July 30, with Google sourcing wind generated electricity from the NextEra Energy Resources Story County II facility.
