Green Power Grab

On the heels of Apple's $850 million backing of a new solar farm in Monterey County, Google has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement for wind power generated at Livermore's Altamont Pass. Google will fund the replacement of about 770 turbines from the 1980s with 48 new models that can produce twice the energy—enough to power the tech giant's Mountain View campus entirely.
