Personally, I think only a self-owned DC could get that low. A general purpose DC would have too many inefficiencies since someone like Equinix must have randomly sized cages, routers and servers, custom-built suites, etc. By owning both sides, GOOG gets a boost. But it's still frickin' amazing, IMHO.
What cost to the environment of not doing it?
OK, green hat off. :) Seriously, I doubt GOOG isn't seeing serious savings from this over time. If they weren't why would they do it?
