Google Confirms It Runs On 100% Renewable Energy

After signing onto three wind-generated power plants, Google announced toward the end of 2017 that it had reached its goal to run on 100-percent renewable energy. The company’s SVP of Technical Infrastructure, Urs Holzle, has officially confirmed that fact in a blog post last week. Google is now the largest corporate buyer into renewable power.

Combining all the energy that Google uses in its offices and data centers, the company buys more renewable energy than it’s able to consume. These sources don’t directly power the company, but each kilowatt-hour they use is replaced by wind and solar projects exclusive to Google. That puts clean energy back into the power grid in greater measure than the company uses.
