Google Reaches 100% Renewable Energy Goal By End Of 2017

By

Google has reached its goal to run on 100-percent renewable energy by the end of this year. Sealing the deal was the company's move to sign onto three wind-generated power plants, which boost Google's operating capacity up to three gigawatts. The landmark achievement continues a trend of tech giants diving into the renewable energy industry.

Contracts for the additional 535 megawatts of capacity came from two 98-megawatt wind plants in South Dakota, a 200-megawatt wind farm in Iowa, and a 138-megawatt plant in Oklahoma, according to Sam Arons, senior leader at Google's Energy and Infrastructure division.
