Google gets into the Solar BusinessPosted: September 28, 2011 | |
Google announced that it is getting into the solar business by using $75 million to finance and own solar systems on 3000 homes. This is a great way to expand the reach of solar without the homeowners having to shell out $30k-$40k. Google owns the panels, and the homeowner pays Google a fixed monthly fee. There are thousands more roofs in the US and lots more opportunity to continue to move away from dirty fossil fuels!
