Applied Materials To Install 1.9 MW Solar Capacity

Per the press release, Applied Materials, equipment supplier to the chip fab and SPV cell industries, has announced that it will install solar panels capable of generating 1.9 megawatts of power on the roofs of the buildings of it's Sunnyvale, California-based campus. When operational in 2008, Applied's new roof-top solar power generating system will provide about the same amount of electricity that would be consumed by 1,400 homes. That's bigger than Google's solar project. So, now who's greener? Image credit: Photo of used AM-made equipment by Fab Surplus
