Google Sets an Example for Other Companies

Google’s decision to install 1.6-megawatts (MW) of solar panels on its headquarters in Mountain View, California will cause other large companies to do the same in the near future, according to an executive at Sharp Electronics.

“I’m seeing that there’s a lot of movement going on by large companies, so the dance card is full,” said Ron Kenedi, Vice President for the Solar Energy Solutions Group at Sharp Electronics, speaking on RenewableEnergyAccess.com’s Inside Renewable Energy podcast. “And I am very encouraged by this movement.” Kenedi noted the decisions by FedEx and Johnson & Johnson to put solar on their regional headquarters. These actions, he said, are proving that solar is becoming a mainstream energy source and “is part of the solution” for the country’s environmental and energy security problems.
