Did you know that the energy used by a single google search is equivalent to turning on a 60W light bulb for 17 seconds?

Juice Electrical Supplies recently ran the numbers and compiled an infographic that shows just how much energy Google uses – and how the company’s investment in renewable energy and offsets has given it a carbon footprint of zero. Check out the full infographic after the break!
