In late December of 2012, the Google's treasury team entered in to a new renewable energy deal of an approximately $200 million equity investment in a wind farm Spinning Spur Wind Project in west Texas.
Located in Oldham County, Spinning Spur Wind, a 161 megawatt facility is a wide open, windy section of the Texas Panhandle located about 35 miles from Amarillo, was built by renewable energy developer EDF Renewable Energy, and it generates enough energy to power more than 60,000 average U.S. homes.
With this investment, Google now has total 11 renewable energy investments that the company has made since 2010. Altogether, "these renewable energy projects are capable of generating 2 gigawatts of power," google stated.

"(W)e're undeniably living in the new multi-screen age. Our day-to-day interactions with technology--and our expectations--have increased dramatically. We're no longer content to wait until later to buy shoes or schedule travel or find a hot spot to eat. Technology lets us act now, and we expect reliable results. In fact, we've become so dependent on being connected all the time that 43% of U.S. adults would be willing to give up beer for a month if it meant they could keep accessing the Internet on their smartphones, and 36% said they'd be willing to give up chocolate," posted Paul Muret, Director of Engineering, Google Analytics.
