Did you know that the energy used by a single google search is equivalent to turning on a 60W light bulb for 17 seconds? Now consider that people conduct over 1 billion searches a day, and you’ve got a massive energy footprint of roughly 12.5 million watts – and that’s just a fraction of the search giant’s 260 million watt total. 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!
