Continuing its support of clean energy initiatives, Google has invested in a European solar power plant in Germany. Google is partnering with German private equity company Capital Stage for the 18.65MWp photovoltaic power plant in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany. Google invested $5 million for a 49% stake in the already completed solar power plant. While investing in clean energy projects is not new for Google, this is its first investment outside of the United States.
