California governor Jerry Brown loves the new Apple headquarters, so much that he has fast-tracked its environmental approvals under legislation that permits streamlining of important projects. He is quoted in the Mercury News:

"Apple's state-of-the art campus brings at least $100 million dollars in investment to California and generates no additional greenhouse gas emissions," Brown said in a statement to this newspaper, listing two of the requirements Apple had met to qualify under the law. "On-site fuel cells and 650,000 square feet of solar panels will provide clean, renewable energy for more than 12,000 Apple employees on the new campus."
