Google and a group of Australian government and industry partners have announced a $3 billion power project that will provide energy-hungry consumers with a reliable and affordable way to charge mobile phones, televisions, and laptops without requiring additional power plants.
The project, which will be called the Google Power Network, will be powered by the company’s new and improved solar power technology.
The project will deliver about half the energy it uses today and is expected to be fully operational by 2021.
The new power technology is expected use a grid of hundreds of small solar PV arrays and will generate electricity with less than 1 percent of the fossil fuel that would be used to power the current system.
The company, which has a partnership with Telstra, says the project will help consumers save on energy costs by reducing their reliance on fossil fuels.
The Google Power network will deliver a clean and reliable energy supply, and will be the first time that power is generated onsite, according to the company.
It will be fully powered by Google’s new solar technology, and the energy will be delivered from the solar arrays at the same time.
Google will pay $1.25 per kilowatt hour of power generated, compared to $1 per kiloWatt.
The $3bn project will be funded by the Australian Government, and is part of a broader project by Google and the Australian National University to improve Australia’s electricity grid, and create a low-carbon energy future.
Google has previously partnered with the Australian Energy Market Operator to explore the use of solar to provide energy.
The energy generated by Google Power will also be distributed through a new utility, which is expected in 2020.
The company says it will be able to sell electricity to the grid for less than one cent per kilogram of carbon dioxide, which can be a huge saving.
“We are seeing a dramatic improvement in our global carbon emissions and are committed to delivering the world’s cleanest energy solutions for all Australians,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
“The Google partnership will provide us with an unprecedented opportunity to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our operations and provide an additional cost-effective alternative to conventional energy sources.”
It’s been more than a decade since we first started exploring the possibilities of using solar to power our offices, homes, and businesses,” said Pichay.”
I can’t think of a more important company to invest in than Google, and I think we will see a big benefit for the Australian economy and our citizens in the years to come.
