Google investing $94 in Sacramento Area Solar Fields

An article from the LA Times today describes Google’s investment with a local company, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), to build four large solar farms in the Sacramento area.  The power generated from these fields is already contracted by SMUD for the next 20 years.  This highlights the strength of the solar industry locally and the amount of investment local utilities are making in this form of power generation.  The panel farms will be constructed by Recurrent Energy out of San Francisco
