November 2006 (Medialink) - Solar energy is abundant and infinitely renewable. Now, major corporations are doing their part to help the environment by putting their unused rooftop space to good use.
Corporations like Google, Staples, and General Motors are rolling out the latest solar technology. In fact, the General Motors California facility has the largest corporate design solar energy system in operation. Their current installation generates one megawatt.
While solar energy costs have dropped over 50 percent over the last 30 years, prices still remain high for the average consumer. Yet, if you have the biggest companies in the world putting solar technology on their rooftops, that will drive up supply and demand of the systems. In turn, this will bring down the costs - making it affordable for even the smallest of homeowners.
