Intel reports on its ongoing work worldwide to reduce its climate and environmental footprint in its annual Corporate Responsibility Report.
The company now estimates it has installed 3 million square feet of solar arrays at Intel sites in nine nations. They harvest 33 million kWh 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% 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.
