    I bet this now opens the door for them to offer internet over the powerline as they invested quite a bit of funding into Current Communications Group back in 2005.

    Or announce some sort of deal with Bloom Box (which surely looks like an early April Fool?!)

    Given their recent privacy issues, google would be the last company I'd want as an ISP.

    its more believable than the internet through the toiled AF they did a few years ago, although they have past form so i would expect them to pull something this year, but on AF day

    Just wait until adsense is expanded to cover electrical appliances you have plugged in.

    Re: News - Google Energy gets the green light

    Wow... a stipulation which prevents google from generating or distributing power, but they have the go ahead to research renewable energy...

    Sounds awfully like the government wanting anything they produce to become the intellectual property of profiteering power companies. Hardly useful.

    If they just researched it themselves and then used the tech to power the company alone they would of been better off. Now they will have to produce endless amounts of money for power companies while still having to pay for their power and only getting limited reward for their research efforts.

    Stinks of corruption and profiteering

    Re: News - Google Energy gets the green light

    this just adds to the unsettling feeling that Google is poking its nose into too many parts of our lives.
    Yes, but they will more than likely do a better job than any of our governments and I dont see any other company with balls of google's size.
