Google announced a major investment in four solar photovoltaic (PV) projects Tuesday, bringing the company’s portfolio of clean energy projects to almost $1 billion.

The latest investment of $94 million is the first money the search giant has put toward generating energy into the U.S. grid. Past projects brought solar panels to 10,000 homeowners through the rooftop installations.
