The Alamedan: Google buys Alameda Point wind company, May 31, 2013


The company will be folded into Google[x], the lab that’s developing “moon shot” products like the Web-enabled Google Glass specs and a driverless car. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the company would stay in its former control tower at Alameda Point or move into Google[x]’s labs.

“We've loved our spot there – whether we stay or not will be determined as we figure out the next steps for the team and the technology,” Makani communications director Andrea Dunlap said in response to an e-mail from a reporter.
