Google's going green, or more green apparently.
 
The company says renewable energy will power its offices in dozens of cities next year.
 
Google plans to buy enough renewable energy to power all of its operations in 2017.
 
That includes 13 data centers and offices in 150 cities.
 
Google says its long-term goal is to run on clean zero-carbon energy full-time every day of the year.
 
For now-- Google uses power purchase agreements.
 
The company buys renewable energy from wind or solar energy developers, sells the energy back to the grid at a wholesale price, and receives certificates to use for its businesses.
