Google announced on its blog yesterday that it will install solar panels at its Mountain View, California headquarters. In the post, Google says it will be one of the largest corporate solar panel installations in the U.S. if not the world.
The 1.6 megawatt array will provide up to 30% of the headquarter’s power. For comparison, that’s enough to power 1,000 homes.
Other notable corporate users of solar power include FedEx’s 904 kilowatt array in Oakland and Microsoft’s 480 kilowatt array at its Mountain View research center.
