Google Invests $38M into Wind Power Farms

Google Invests $38M into Wind Power Farms

The company that owns the universe will soon be investing $38.3 million into two NextEra Energy Resources wind farms to hurry the process of serving people with clean, renewable energy.

The wind farms currently generate 169.5 megawatts of power; that’s enough juice to power more than 55,000 homes, according to Google.

In February of this year, Google was granted an order by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to buy and sell energy at market rates, mostly to make energy management for its data centers more efficient, but also in case Google Energy ever decided to become a power utility company as well (likely.) Investors take note.
