Dell Does it Again! Solar Trees Planted in Dell Parking Lot

Dell has been a trend-setter when it comes to the incorporation of greener technologies to reduce their corporate carbon footprint and they’re doing it again! Although this time they are following the lead of Google, by installing solar trees in the parking lot of their head office in Round Rock, Texas.

The solar trees were created by Envision Solar, which was also responsible for Google’s installation, and will accomplish more than one goal for the company – providing a green solar option that will provide some level of power to the headquarters site, and create charging stations for employees in the staff parking lot. Although Envision Solar engineered the project, the solar panels themselves are byproducts of BP Solar and the charging points themselves, which will provide plug-in energy for those driving hybrid and electric vehicles to work at Dell, come from Coulomb Technologies.

The solar trees will provide 130,000 KW per year to the facility, and also offer shade and charging points to staff in the parking lots; the only downside of this installation is that the trees are only accessible for shade and charging for a small percentage of Dell employees who drive to work since they cover a mere 56 spots and have 2 Clean Charge stations for plug-in power in the Round Rock lot.
