Google announced today that it’s investing $75 million in a central Iowa wind farm that produces 50 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 15,000 homes.
According to Google spokeswoman Kate Hurowitz, the investment is part of an effort to “green the grid in regions where we operate.”
“Google has invested heavily in wind energy because it’s good for the environment and because it will provide a strong financial return,” Hurowitz said. “We believe the world needs a wide range of renewable energy technologies to build a clean energy future.”
