...AND CHEAPER...:

How Google and other tech giants are betting big on clean energy (Joe Myers, 26 August 2016, World Economic Forum)

The Norwegian project, consisting of 50 turbines near Stavanger, will be ready late next year. The 22 turbines near Mariestad in Sweden, are set to be completed in early 2018.

The announcement is the latest in a series of power purchase agreements completed by the Silicon Valley giant. With seven agreements in place in Europe, and 18 deals across the globe, Google is set to have 2.5 gigawatts of energy at its disposal.

This is "the equivalent of taking over 1 million cars off the road," said Marc Oman, EU Energy Lead, Google Global Infrastructure, in a blog post.
