Very noble indeed! The search giant Google has partnered with SolarCity and already dumped more than $300 million into a fund to help Americans install solar panels on their homes. SolarCity has already garnered $750 million to help finance homeowners in 15 states. SolarCity says homeowners usually pay less for electricity than those using traditional fossil fuel sources. The other benefit of solar is that is much cleaner than traditional fuels. This is the largest investment to date that Google has made to renewable energy projects.
Sidd Mundra, Renewable Energy Principal at Google, said “It’s good for the environment, good for families and also makes good business sense.”
Google has recently launched “Project SunRoof” which is currently only available in San Francisco, Fresno, and Boston for now. As it spreads accross the nation, it allows users to enter their home address and find out how much they would save by going solar.
