Googleplex is going solar. Well, part of it is. The Mountain View-based company announced its plans to power part of its HQ using solar panels. 9,200 solar panels to be exact. The search engine giant hopes to set an example for corporate America and said it will power up to 30% of its facilities using the good ol' sun. Google wouldn't go into detail as to how much the project will cost them, but we do know it's being headed by Pasadena-based El Solutions. Google, we salute thee on your noble efforts.
