"Google Backs Offshore Wind Power Project"
"Google is backing a plan to lay undersea cables to connect offshore windmills off the mid-Atlantic coast, a step the Internet giant hopes will boost wind power as an energy source.
The $5-billion offshore wind power transmission line will stretch 350 miles from New Jersey to Virginia and could supply enough wind energy to serve about 1.9 million households. But the ambitious project faces hurdles.
Wind Google said in a blog post that the project will rely on offshore power hubs that collect power from wind farms and deliver it via undersea cables to electrical transmission systems on land."Source: , 10/13/2010
