Google has invested $55 million in a wind energy farm in southern California that will generate up to 1,550 megawatts of power - bringing the search giant’s total investments in clean energy up to $400 million.
The farm is located in Tehachapi, California. The deal does not involve a power purchase agreement - meaning Google is only investing money in the project because it believes it will generate some kind of financial return. The first several projects in the Alta Wind Energy Center are already complete and the wind farm is generating 720 megawatts of power.
