In 2004, Chromeworks Inc. installed 176 300-watt solar modules; half on the roof of the building, and the other half form the roof of a carport that protects employees’ cars from the 115oF Chico, California summer heat. The panels supply most of the electricity needed to run the lab and it purchases the additional electricity from a local electric company.
The lab’s delivery vehicle has a manual transmission and gets over 30 miles to the gallon. “We had to train all the drivers to drive a stick!” says Robinson.
