    Intel campus in Folsom unveils sprawling solar power carport | The Sacramento Bee

    Shaded parking spots plus free energy. Win for everyone. So proud of my former employer.

    'Carport' might be underselling it a touch...

    Makes so much sense. People love shaded parking and you generate energy in the process. A true win-win.

    That is impressive! Kudos to Intel for forward thinking.
    And 16 EV charging spots in the parking area. I hope they will need many more than that.
    Now Intel needs to buy a bunch of Powerpacks and go energy neutral for that campus.

    I love this. I wish companies would let EV owners finance/build Solar canopies to charge their EVs.

    Yes, I sure wish more places would do this.

    How about more solar panel shaded Supercharger stations? (Although I suppose that it would lead to more ICEing.)

    Rocklin store/service center has this but with Tesla employees on site ICEing would be taken care of quickly.
