Google has just switched on it's gigantic solar project and, in traditional Google fashion, has an excellent web-based application tracking its progress. Anyone familiar with Google's stats package will recognize the www.smartersecurity.com software used here, but it's really cool to see the actual amount of power being generated by the panels at any given time.
And, of course, we have the obligatory "this would power 41,000 alarm clocks for one year" math going on at the bottom of the page.
Category notably not included? "This would power X number of Googleplexes for 24 hours", as that number is unfortunately still less than one.
Nevertheless...props to Google...keep up the good work.
