Google Wants More Renewable Energy Powering its Expanding NC Data Center

Share

When Google announced plans to double its investment in its North Carolina data center to $1.2 billion last week, it also touted an innovative program with Duke Energy to expand renewable energy options in the state through a “Renewable Energy Tariff” that will allow the Internet giant to ensure more of the electricity powering the data center is green.

Google last week reaffirmed its continuing commitment to maximizing renewable power at its facilities in announcing its intention to participate in the Duke Energy program as part of the expansion of the Lenoir, NC, data center housing the computer systems supporting Google Search, Gmail, Google+ and YouTube.
