The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is okay with the idea of Google dealing in energy. Yesterday, it granted "market-based rate authorization" to Google Energy and designated the entity a Category 1 seller in all regions.
Remember when Google was just a search engine? We often still think about it that way, yet we are frequently reminded of the breadth of product offerings and ultimately the power the company possesses. Power, or energy rather, is actually something Google could end up selling in the future.
