Google has chosen EI Solutions to build a 1.6 MW solar power system for their Mountain View location. The array could produce enough electricity to power 1000 California homes, but will generate only 30% of Google's power needs. Savings will be around $393,000 per year -- or $30 million over its lifetime.
