Google Throws Its Heft Behind Jumbo Wind Project

Google is investing in a backbone transmission infrastructure to deliver wind power generated off the mid-Atlantic coast of the United States to consumers in the region. When built out, the Atlantic Wind Connection backbone will stretch 350 miles off the coast from New Jersey to Virginia. It will connect ocean-based wind turbines that will generate 6,000 megawatts of power. The backbone will be built around offshore power hubs that will collect the power from multiple offshore wind farms and deliver it through undersea cables to the land-based transmission system.
