Google made its 13th renewable energy investment since 2010 this week, helping to fund a 265.7-megawatt (MW) solar project in California.
Google invested $103 million in Silver Ridge Power’s Mount Signal Solar project, the company announced today on its Green Blog. Located in Imperial County, Mount Signal is expected to be operational some time in 2014. Silver Ridge secured an agreement to sell its output to the San Diego Gas & Electric Co.
Mount Signal will power 80,000 homes and create 900 construction jobs. Silver Ridge already operate 51 solar power plants that generate 522 MW in seven countries.
