Google Will Run Entirely On Renewables Next Year

Google will purchase enough solar and wind power by some point in 2017 to cover all of the energy used by its data centers and offices. The company is already the largest corporate buyer of renewable power in the world. To showcase its efforts to become a greener company, Google is running a site dedicated to its environmental efforts and is releasing environment update reports.

With the cost of renewables like solar and wind far lower than they once were, Google can reap the benefits of good PR and a good conscience without breaking the bank.
