Smart move; I can see a couple of wind towers that will supply all the energy needs and sell the surplus back to the grid.

They can repackage it and make profit because as long as NIMBY gets in the way, there's going to be a shortage of green energy and who do you think will wrap it up and sell it? Google!

Are they saying they want to buy "green energy" in markets where is it more expensive than non-green energy and sell it for the same cost as normal electricity, effectively subsidizing others using "greener" energy?

And why is it that "green" energy refers to power generated from non-co2 emitting sources, when an increase in co2 results in greater plant mass, thus is more green? I understand that soot and other actual pollutants are bad for the environment, but wouldn't the best end product for plant life be co2 which would then feed additional plants?

Except that their terminators would be fighting against Apple and Microsoft rather than humanity.
