Apple Planning Massive Solar Roof for New HQ

Remember the scifi design for the new Apple campus that Steve Jobs introduced last summer?

At some 2.8 million square feet and capable of holding 12,000 people, we were naturally curious as to how sustainable the tech company would consider making the building. Details previously revealed include a low-carbon, on-site natural gas generator that would generate the majority of the required electricity, with less reliance on the grid.

There are also plans to plant over 6,000 trees – with a before and after shot showing an incredible amount of green space being added to the 150-acre campus.

Last week, in newly updated documents, Apple revealed that they’re also planning on generating a substantial amount of power using the sun. The addition of photovoltaic cells to both the roof of the “spaceship” and a massive parking garage will likely give them the title of “largest corporate solar installation” in the U.S.; if not the world.

Apple site 9to5Mac estimates the main building could produce over 5 megawatts of energy alone.

“I think what we’re going to end up doing is making the energy center our primary source of power, because we can generate power with natural gas and other ways that can be cleaner and cheaper, and use the grid as our backup,” Jobs said last summer. “We think that makes more sense.”
