Hewlett-Packard announced that it will be installing a 1-megawatt solar array on its San Diego facility. Five thousand panels will be installed on seven buildings, making it a large solar installation but still smaller than Google’s 1.6 megawatt solar array.

HP is using SunPower to install the solar panel [1] and sell the electricity generated. The installation is expected to save HP $750,000 over 15 years and potentially offset 1 million pounds of CO2 annually.

The company is taking it one step further by encourage HP employees to purchase solar electric panels from Sun Power [2] which would earn employees a $2,000 rebate from Sun Power, which HP will match.
