Solar Googleplex
Sarah Rich, 17 Oct 06

Google's piling on the superlatives, enhancing their giant web empire with a giant solar array -- the largest corporate system in the world -- on the roof of their million-square-foot Mountain View headquarters. The installation, according the Reuters, will be able to generate 1.6 megawatts of electricity, which is enough to power 1,000 homes or 1/3 of their on-site offices. Can't wait to hear the reports on how much money they save on energy bills in the first year.

I would like to know if Google is working on a way to power their multiple data centers around the conntry, including the one here in Northwest (which is hydro powered). These data centers must use magnitudes more power than their office centers. They have 500,000 servers in 25 countries.
