    Google gets into the power business

    I've just got a CodeProject newsletter that contained a link with this title that leads to this page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/...127_green.html, I also found the following ones:

    http://www.google.com/corporate/green/energy/index.html
    http://www.google.org/recharge/
    And simply http://www.google.org/

    That looks impressing! I couldn't imagine that Google was so diversifiedm if they succeed it will be a real breakthrough that will hopefully lead us to the polutionless future and Google will become the most powerful company in the world.

    That's just my first impression, frankly I'm just exited, a few time later I'll read again those articles with a more sceptic view.

    Maybe they'll do it, maybe not. The purpose is to reduce their own electric bill. Their data centers must chew up tens of millions a month of it.

    They built a new data center that uses almost all of one power plants energy. They built it down the road from the plant. Some other companies already have own solar systems that save millions each year.
