Smaller companies around the country can follow in the steps of larger ones when implementing alternative power policies. Google, which has recently signed an agreement to offset its energy expenses through the help of a windfarm in Altamount Pass, California, could be setting a precedent for the use of alternative power by major operations. Under this deal, the company will power its Mountain View North Bayshore buildings with green renewable wind energy.

Google has focused on renewable energy for years, and this latest deal represents just one iteration of its attempt to remain “carbon neutral.” This could also work as a turning point for the amount of energy that the company saves through this initiative, as it hopes to harness 43 MW of electricity produced by this farm within a year.

This information comes from a post on the official Google blog by Real Estate and Workplace Services VP David Radcliffe, who described this effort as a culmination of five years of investing in wind technology.

“This new technology is twice as efficient, and also safer—especially for wildlife,” he writes. “Once the installation is complete, and the 370 legacy turbines are replaced, it will take just 24 new ones to generate as much power as our campus uses in a year,” he adds.

Wired reports that Google isn’t the only major company who has been spending more on reducing their carbon footprint: other major American businesses like Amazon and Apple have invested in similar initiatives.

Whether a company has a history of strongly supporting green energy or wants to make the switch, environmental office solutions play into the general desire to keep energy use low while retaining practical functionality in the workplace. These help office managers immediately tackle problems in the workplace that could be sources of waste and expenditures.
