Seems like these two IT giants are set to battle on yet another front…who is the greener of them all!
Microsoft had previously announced solar installations to help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by its massive use of energy when along comes Google today and announces its own solar energy generation program.
And then we learn that one of the Google billionaires, Sergei Brin, has been using solar power to recharge his mobile phone in London! So it seems that celebrities, industry movers and others are now embracing this technology as it becomes CHIC to be GREEN!
The awareness will simply continue to grow as people of this stature validate the technology as life-enhancing. Adoption however will continue to depend on how we can design products that enhance the customer’s life experience rather than interfere with it for the sake of being green.
