Google to invest $5 million in German solar plant

The solar photovoltaic power plant, sited east of Berlin, is expected to provide clean energy to more than 5,000 homes in the surrounding area.

Google plans to invest 3.5 million euros, or about $5 million, in a solar photovoltaic power plant in Germany, according to an announcement today.

The power plant has a capacity of 18.65MWp and is located on a 116-acre site--previously used as a Russian military training ground--in Brandenburg an der Havel, approximately 50 miles from Berlin.

Google said it will provide clean energy to more than 5,000 homes in the surrounding area. The proposal still requires the formal approval of the German competition authorities.
