You ever wonder what your favorite companies are doing to promote a more green, tech-focused lifestyle? Google is definitely a name which jumps to the forefront of both popularity among Internet users and also initiatives in cutting down on its carbon footprint. The Internet search engine company shared today some of the on-going green projects happening on its corporate campus in the Silicon Valley.
Google apparently does a fair amount of green things around its headquarters, according to a blog post it put up today. These include, but are probably not limited too, a Bay Area wide shuttle service for employees which uses bio-diesel fuel, over 9,200 solar panels which generate 30 percent of its peak electricity needs, sustainable building materials and a small fleet of plug-in vehicles employees can use to run errands during the day. They also have some decidedly low/no tech green projects going on as well, such as using goats to control grass growth in the fields around the campus.
