Energy costs are a major concern at Google. Not only does Google call for more efficient power supply standard, but they also announced that they plan to build the largest solar installation in US. Good effort in reducing the environmental impact as a company. (I did not know Microsoft had already invested on solar system.)
But, on the other hand, in UK it has been claimed that a £10m drive to add wind turbines to public sites and to promote renewable energy is being funded by cuts to other green projects. That is shocking.
Below is a 3D rendering of the Google project (from VentureBeat). It’s very dark grey and boring. Why can’t they make it more colourful by adding Google colours like ones (sun parasols?) in the centre of the image?
