Technology consumes power. More technology consumes more power. A growing population consumes even more technology, which consumes more power. In the past 20 years, we’ve gone from people who turn technology on and off to people who are connected to and reliant on technology 24/7, so the power consumption is continuous. Technology growth has momentum that is running unchecked, creating an invisible draw on electrical current that most do not fathom.
For years, clean energy developers could look to only a small handful of corporations as project partners or customers for their power. Mostly, there was Google, and a few other high-tech companies that worked directly with wind and solar developers to help green their energy use.
