The company has installed more than 8,000 solar parking spots worldwide. New solar projects are planned or underway at many Intel campuses, including those in Ocotillo; Chandler, Arizona; India; Vietnam; and Malaysia. (Credit: Intel Corporation)
Imagine enough solar panels to cover 52 regulation U.S. football fields
or 47 full-size soccer fields. The company now estimates it has
installed 3 million square feet of solar arrays at Intel sites in nine
nations. They harvest 33 million kilowatt hours of green power,
equivalent to the annual energy use of 3,700 U.S. homes. At its campuses
across the U.S., Europe and Asia, Intel uses energy from the sun to heat
and cool its buildings, provide lighting and produce electricity for
on-campus use. Today, 100 percent of the energy Intel uses in its chip
manufacturing business in the U.S. and Europe comes from renewable
sources: solar, hydro, wind. Intel has for the past decade, according to
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, been the United States’ No. 1
or No. 2 corporate buyer of green power.

Intel Corporate Responsibility Report, released today.
