San Francisco: Google will invest USD 75 million in a wind energy project to power one of its data centres in the US, the company announced Thursday.
The Rippey wind farm, located in the US state of Iowa, has a capacity to produce 50 MW of electricity. With this, the search giant's total investment in clean energy projects has now risen to nearly USD 1 billion, Xinhua reported.
The California-based company had last year created a USD 280-million fund in partnership with SolarCity, an American solar energy company, to generate clean energy.
