The Google team believes in the need to transform our economy with clean energy and they are invested in finding solutions.
Google has become a synonymous with information and answers. It has become a verb that we use on a daily basis. But do you know that Google is also in the renewable energy industry? Do you know about Google.org and its five major initiatives, one of which is to ‘Develop Renewable Energy Cheaper Than Coal’?
How are they going to help achieve this goal, you may ask? In order to accomplish this, Google.org is focused on investing in clean technologies and has already invested more than $45 million. It is also working to influence and expand policies that will help accelerate the development of renewables and using its products to raise awareness.
Back in 2007, Renewable Choice worked with Google to promote supporting wind power during the weeks surrounding Earth Day. At the end of every Google Checkout transaction, an option to purchase a Renewable Choice Wind Power Card was offered. It was an innovative way to spread the word about the choices that we all have to support renewable energy. Since this promotion, Google has been investing in renewables on their campus and with money and resources to help this country adopt a more sustainable energy infrastructure. To learn more about their newest policy recommendations, go here. As you might expect, they have some good ideas and a goal of weaning the U.S. off of coal and oil by 2030.
