Google Harnessing the Sun

Google plans to take advantage of the sun, with the installation of solar panels to deliver 30% of its power consumption.

Soon we plan to begin installation of 1.6 megawatts of solar photovoltaic panels at our Mountain View campus. This project will be the largest solar installation on any corporate campus in the U.S., and we think it’s one of the largest on any corporate site in the world.

This should put to rest the rumor that the sun shines out of Google’s @ss – if it did, they wouldn’t need the panels! (sorry, couldn’t resist). ;-)
