Basically coal hasn't 'cleaned up its act' with pollution standards and energy efficency stuck in the '60s. Consumers, including major corportations are getting tired of the excuses and inaction. So they are making their own initiatives to bypass the non-competitive losers.

Good to hear someone's doing something about big bad coal. Really hope all of Google's efforts will have the desired effect of making renewables cost-effective.
