Energy Roundup - WSJ.com : Google is famously building one of the biggest solar installations in the U.S., adding 1.6 megawatts of solar photovoltaic panels at its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. TreeHugger reports that, not to be outdone, Applied Materials is doing Google one better, with plans to install 1.9 megawatts of solar panels at its headquarters. “We’re excited to see the spirit of corporate dominance applying to solar panels,” TreeHugger writes. “Applied Materials, however, has an additional incentive…they make the solar panels they’ll be installing.” Of course, Wal-Mart’s solar plans could dwarf those of both Google and Applied Materials, TreeHugger notes.
