How to make use of Google’s spectrum for solar power?
Here’s how to use it.
Google owns and operates the network of electricity generating facilities in the US and Australia that is a vital part of the US grid.
In 2017, the US Government signed a memorandum of understanding with Google to share the spectrum and services of the network with Australian government agencies and utilities.
The memorandum of agreement between the US government and Google covers the spectrum in the 2.3-million-kilometre (1.5-million mile) network of substations in the New York City metropolitan area.
Under the terms of the memorandum of understandings, Google will pay for the right to use and control the spectrum.
The spectrum is used by Google to power internet access, telecommunications, and telecommunications infrastructure for its Fiber service.
In 2018, Google also bought another 1.5 million-kilometer (1 million-mile) network for its Google Fiber service in Kansas City, Missouri.
In October, the company announced that it would be acquiring the same network in Los Angeles for $1.6 billion.
The deal has already been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
However, the deal has been subject to some political hurdles.
In December, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) ruled that Google’s deal with the US Department of Energy (DOE) to buy the 2,500-kilogram (3,000-pound) “C-Band” band would not be legal.
According to the Federal Register, the FCC “is concerned that the acquisition of the C-Band spectrum would not only increase the volume of spectrum available to the company but also undermine competition.”
The FCC also said that Google should not acquire the network until it can demonstrate that it is in compliance with the FERC’s proposed rules for spectrum acquisition.
Google has faced other legal battles over the use of its spectrum.
In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that it should not be allowed to use spectrum for its internet services because the spectrum is not being used for “the purpose for which it was intended”.
Google has argued that it only acquired the C band spectrum because the government wanted to build a high-speed broadband network in the city of Chicago, Illinois.
The FCC argued that Google had not shown that the Cband spectrum was being used “for any of the other purposes for which the CBand spectrum was originally intended”.
However, in September, the United States Supreme Court overturned that decision.
In a 5-4 decision, the court found that the FCC’s use of the spectrum to build its Chicago high-capacity broadband network violated the Communications Act.
