Quotes

If you need to go through that one more time to understand it, here's how Google explains it : "Essentially, this is how it works: Using the fund ($100 million from Google and $150 million from SunPower), we buy the solar panel systems. Then we lease them to homeowners at a cost that’s typically lower than their normal electricity bill. So by participating in this program, you don’t just help the environment—you can also save money."
"Although two per cent over the next six years may not sound like a significant increase, with the average energy bill now at an eye-watering £1,265 a year many consumers will be left feeling concerned by this announcement" she added
...SunPower Chief Financial Officer Chuck Boynton said in a statement: "We're pleased to partner with Google to help make solar accessible to more families and allow those families to take control of their energy costs.”"
"If we want to produce seven megawatts of energy, we only need to use 1.3 square miles of surface area," he explains. "That's less than half what's needed for 11 big, expensive, and ugly wind turbines."
