Google solar panel project

Make 730
This is neat, the Google solar panel project shows much much power they’ve slurped from the Sun and the equivalent kilowatt-hours…

In the last 24 hours, Google produced 9,900 kilowatt-hours of electricity from the sun.

In October 2006, Google announced a commitment to solar energy production and launched the largest solar panel installation to date on a corporate campus in the United States. Google has installed over 90% of the 9,212 solar panels that comprise the 1,600 kilowatt project. Panels cover the rooftops of eight buildings and two newly constructed solar carports at the Googleplex (check out this SketchUp fly-over video).

This installation is projected to produce enough electricity for approximately 1,000 California homes or 30% of Google’s peak electricity demand in our solar powered buildings at our Mountain View, CA headquarters.

We built this page to monitor and share the day to day production of clean, renewable energy from our very own rooftops.

    Well, I love this project. But we have to monitor it for 1 full year. Because of the Sun position and Weatherso we can learn more from it.
    Don’t forget to let us know how much $$/time need to spend on cleanning the panel.
    (I got terrible trouble on use solar in Taipei)
