Accelerating The Transition To Google’s Carbon Free Energy

Google and other corporate buyers are committing to carbon free energy goals for their operations. This seems like a noble goal to actively address climate change, which deserves public recognition and support, IMO. I also wonder, could this move by Google also be a strategic business decision to hedge against paying carbon pricing/taxes? If so, this would be a terrific hedge against paying higher energy prices that would certainly accompany all use of fossil fuels, because this would enable a Company to prove they consume only carbon-free energy, and therefore are not subject to carbon taxes.

It would seem that corporate/industrial buyers would be well advised to follow Google’s lead and hedge against the prospects of paying higher energy prices by securing long-term green energy contracts, and avoid carbon pricing taxes, which may arrive on your doorstep in the near future.
