Google has announced plans to install a large solar panel system at its Mountain View, CA headquarters. At 1.6 megawatts, this project will be the largest solar installation on any corporate campus in the United States and one of the largest on any corporate site in the world. The 9,212 solar energy panels will be used to power several of Google’s Mountain View office facilities, a spokesperson says. The amount of electricity generated, which is enough to supply on average 1,000 California homes, will help to offset an estimated 30 percent of the peak electricity consumption in Mountain View.
