    Nowadays, more and more companies are using solar power to supplement their electricity consumption. Take Google for instance, this is a company takes care of the environment. In the last 24 hours, Google produced 7,014 kilowatt-hours of electricity from the sun. This is tremendous!

    This is what they said, “This installation produces enough electricity to power 30% of Google’s peak electricity demand in our solar powered buildings at our Mountain View, CA headquarters. That’s the equivalent of approximately 1,000 California homes.”
