Google makes global investment in solar and wind power

Google announced it's making a major investment in renewable energy. The search giant announced 18 new energy deals across the US, Chile and Europe. That includes purchasing energy from solar farms in South Carolina, North Carolina and Texas, and making data center investments in Chile that combine solar and wind power. Google also said the new agreements will kick-start the development of millions of solar panels, wind turbines and other construction, which will add up to more than $2 billion in new infrastructure.
