    Google today announced a new partnership with SolarCity, committing $280 million from its coffers to finance SolarCity installations, namely solar rooftops for homes in North America.

    The partnership brings Google employees a discount on residential solar installations and services from SolarCity. On a worldwide basis, according to the company’s last quarterly earnings report, Google employs about 26,300 full-time.

    Earlier this month, SolarCity locked a commitment from U.S. Bancorp that put them past the $1 billion mark in terms of financing capacity. Google becomes the company’s seventh major financing partner.

    As people are finding out now in New York, that 70K solar roof that they installed........ got a cheesy little tax credit for?

    Now they find out that the are NOT elegible for any possible future carbon credits 10, 20 30 years from now. NOT ELIGIBLE!!!:eek: What a fcukking laugh.
