Google invests $100 million in the world's largest wind farm

Shepherds Flat Wind Farm, currently under construction in Oregon, is set to become the world's largest wind farm when it's completed next year. And that's thanks in part to a new $100 million investment by Google.

When it's completed in 2012, the farm will produce 845 MW of energy, enough for 235,000 homes. Not too shabby! It's great to see more investment in projects like this, which not only get people working but also provide clean and dependable energy. More, please!
