Google gets greener

Ars Technica reports that Google can now produce 30% of their peak demand power through their new installation of 9,212 solar panels. It can produce up to 1.6MW of green electricity, which is rather impressive.

Along with their other environmental efforts, it looks like they are committed to compensating for the vast amounts of electricity (and therefore carbon emissions) that they use to power and cool their servers (that we are quickly becoming dependant upon).

Great news, Google!
