Following two investments in solar technology, Larry Page is showing who’s boss in making a third investment since taking over the reigns as CEO. Google’s latest investment brings its total spending to just under $300 million dollars so far this year. Google will now be investing in a nearby state to Silicon Valley, Oregon. The high tech giant will be spending $100 million in the Shepherds Flat Wind Farm in Arlington, Oregon.
Google will be joining the project with Caithness Energy, General Electric, Tyr Energy, and Sumitomo Corporation of America. The wind farm is still under construction but is expected to be the largest wind farm in the world! One the project has been completed, the farm will produce 845 megawatts of energy, allowing power to be saved in 235,000 homes.
