These companies are really ''getting it'' and boy dont they have some money to invest - Wow ! at least its going on a great cause.
Underscoring the affinity between technology operations and renewable energy, some of the world's biggest IT and service provider companies continue to line up to back more renewable energy investments.
Two years ago Google invested $94 million for four solar farms in California totaling 88 MW. Now they're upping the ante, backing six more solar plants in in the U.S. with combined capacity of 106 MW.
Last year Google purchased over 727,000 MWh of renewable energy via long-term contracts, covering 22% of its total electricity consumption, and to date it's committed more than a billion dollars in 13 renewable energy projects totaling more than 2 GW of electricity.
Meanwhile, Facebook said its new data centre in Iowa, will be "more than" offset by a 138-MW wind farm.
Facebook aims to achieve 25 percent clean and renewable energy for its global data centers by 2015.
Perhaps not to feel left out - last week Microsoft announced its first long-term PPA, a 20-year contract with a 110-MW Wind project.
