Google bought a company called Makani. They then took the technology that Makani was working on and made it part of Alphabet’s X company. In case you’re not familiar with X, formerly known as Google X, they are the division of Alphabet that works on far out moonshot projects. Products like the autonomous car and Google watch came out of X. Anyway, the technology Makani is working on is putting wind turbines on a big kite that is lifted into the air. As the kite moves through the air, the wind generators make electricity that is sent back to the ground through the kite tether. Learn more at the Google website.
