Google Solar Panel Project

10,055 kilowatt-hours in the last 24 hours were produced by the solar panels installed on the roof of the Googleplex in Mountain View. To help visualize what this number means in daily use, you could watch TV for 83,971 hours. Do 3,656 loads of laundry. Go through 6,281 dishwasher cycles. What we found to be the most interesting number however is that even with all this energy being produced by the installed solar panels, this is still only enough to satisfy 30% of Google's peak electricity demand. Definitely a step in the right direction and coupled with the other green efforts going on at Google that number is likely to go up.
