Apple on February 22nd, 2107 announced that Apple Park, the company’s new 175-acre campus, will be ready for employees to begin occupying in April.

Apple Park will include 17 megawatts of rooftop solar, one of the largest on-site photovoltaic (PV) installations in the world.

Envisioned by Steve Jobs as a center for creativity and collaboration, Apple Park is transforming miles of asphalt sprawl into a haven of green space in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley, reads the press release.

The campus’ ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building is clad entirely in the world’s largest panels of curved glass, and Apple Park will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy.
