Google Inc. is investing nearly $40 million in two North Dakota wind farms.
One of the farms is in Griggs and Steele counties and the other is in Burleigh County.
Google spokesman Jamie Yood says the Internet search engine firm is interested in the wind projects as an investment that will provide a financial return.
He says it's Google's first direct investment in a renewable energy project.
