Google investing blindly in energy projects as after $168M in solar thermal and $100M in wind power, they’re investing in… more wind power! They’re providing $55 million to finance the 102 MW Alta IV project, part of the massive 1,550MW Alta Wind Energy Center (AWEC) project,it is termed as one of the world’s largest wind installations.According to googleblog ”The first five Alta projects are already operational, delivering 720 MW of energy to Southern California Edison, which will receive all 1,550 MW when completed, under a power purchase agreement signed with Terra-Gen in 2006. While Google won’t be purchasing the electricity from this project, AWEC will help California meet its ambitious renewable portfolio standard of 33 percent clean power by 2020. The whole site will boost California’s wind generation by 30 percent”.
