Google Paying Millions To Help You Switch To Solar Power
Listen up y’all! This is what everyone should hear right now. Our one and only mate in making assignments and projects have never failed students (like me) in helping us academically. We also search all sorts of information through this. This time, this best friend of ours has taken itself to a whole new different level. “Who are you talking about?” No other than the world’s greatest assistant, my friend: Google. We are going to owe Google big time because of their next investment they just made. Google is trying to help us not only academically, but also environmentally and financially. *winks* Oh yeah, I know I got your attention through the word ‘financially’. You want to know all about it? “Leave no single detail.” Yes, sir! *salutes* I’ll tell you about Google and the renewable energy project.
Google is an “American multinational corporation specializing in Internet-related services and products.” It is founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998. Google is the world’s most visited website according to Alexa Internet Incorporation in December 2013. According to Wikipedia, Google forms the not-for-profit philanthropic Google.org, with a start-up fund of $1 billion in 2004. “The mission of the organization is to create awareness about climate change, global public health, and global poverty. One of its first projects was to develop a viable plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that can attain 100 miles per gallon.” This Google organization is concerned about the people and environment. This is very much related to Google’s latest investment which aims to install solar panels to thousands of homes.
Google has invested a shining, shimmering, splendid $300 million. *silence* Just imagine how much they earn. Anyway, the fund is created by SolarCity, an American provider of energy services. The provider has already collected a total fund of $750 million. The solar panels will be installed in 15 states, and the homeowners will pay SolarCity for the electricity they generate. According to SolarCity, as cited by Victor Luckerson, their customers ‘usually’ pay less for electricity than people who use traditional fossil fuels — and it says its energy is cleaner, too. For Sidd Mundra, Google’s Renewable Energy Principal, the program is good for the environment and families. “It also makes good business sense,” says Mundra as quoted by Luckerson. This is by far Google’s largest investment in renewable energy projects.
Well, what can you say? Google is trying to help us again. How can we thank it? Maybe by using Google search engine all the time? *winks* *big smile* That’s how I’ll thank them! To read more, visit off Grid World’s website below.
