    We’ve got wind of Apple’s soon-to-open headquarters in Cupertino, California before. The spaceship-resembling building could now host one of the largest solar installations in the United States, with the roof spanning an area of a whopping 500,000 square feet that could all be topped with solar panels. And that’s not all. The parking space will boast 2,000 sq feet of photovoltaic solar panels, making this one of the greenest corporate facilities in the country. Also, Apple has made sure to keep the green in, with an increase of tree population in the area by 60% and reducing the use of asphalt by 90%.

    And with this, Apple seems to be taking a big bite off the sun, juicing its newest and state-of-the-art facility with solar energy.
