Applied Materials completes largest US solar setup

Applied Materials announced that it has finished the installation of two new solar power systems that together produce about 2.1 megawatts of electricity. Applied Materials says that this is the “largest solar power deployment at a corporate facility in the United States.” This beats Google’s solar panel farm of 1.6 megawatts and Far West Rice Mills 1.0 megawatt solar installation.

Applied Materials hit 1.6 megawatts by using two different solar farms – they installed a 950-kilowatt solar panel canopy over its parking lot (with the extra benefit of keeping those cars cooler in the shade), and a 1.2 megawatt SunPower Tracker setup.
