Google has announced plans to invest in the Atlantic Wind Connection, a project that will connect 6,000 megawatts of offshore wind turbines to the Mid-Atlantic power grid. In the blog post announcing the initiative, Rick Needham, Google’s green-business operations director, described it as a “superhighway for clean energy.” According to the Washington Post, the tech giant is part of a consortium of tech and investment firms involved in the project, the first phase of which is valued at $1.8 billion.
