Google’s solar power plans in 3D

A little while back, Google announced their intentions to go ‘corporate green’, and start supplying a large chunk of their power needs through solar panels. The project isn’t done yet – in fact, there’s a long way to go – but you can see “artist’s impression” drawings of the planned alterations to the Googleplex, which seems to consist of covering the roofs and car-parks with photovoltaics. Of course, Google being Google, you can also see the plans in 3D with the relevant Google Earth download. I wonder how much extra traffic this story would need to generate to cancel out the increased proportion of clean energy?
