Official Google Blog: The wind cries transmission
The other shoe drops regarding Google being a power broker. This offshore long distance transmission line network kills two birds with one stone; power leveling wind turbine output by averaging over a large geographic area, and new long distance transmission capacity with little to no NIMBY blockage (because it's very difficult to block what people can't see and is beyond the 12 mile limit) carrying power from southern US power producers (which includes the new nuclear reactors in Georgia). No other major power broker can probably bring online such large north-south transmission capacity using existing rights-of-way, and will likely have to either buy into the project at a disadvantage, or end up getting screwed by Google later in the power spot markets.
