3D Solar Array

As you may have read, Google has made a significant commitment to lowering its carbon footprint by erecting a large array of solar panels at its headquarters in Mountain View, California. For months, Googlers have watched the construction crews toil away in our parking lots and atop our buildings to make these solar powered plans a reality.

You can see how there panels are implemented without traveling to Mountain View by viewing these 3D models in Google Earth or Google SketchUp. As impressive as this project is, only part of it is currently shown in these models, as other Google buildings in Mountain View have solar panels on or near them as well.
