Right now, sometimes we speak of apple, many people will not associate with fruit, but iPhone, iPad, Macbook. Apple electric products with simple design and high quality have been spread over the world. Apple spaceship campus 2 building also is much-anticipated, not only for its apple shape, but its green architecture.
Saving energy is linked closely with solar power. Estimated roof surface area of Apple Campus 2 is over 750,000 square feet. Assuming (conservatively) 2/3rds of that, or 500,000 square feet of that is utilized for solar, that gives Apple close to a 5MW installation on the amin building alone. On average or as a general “rule of thumb” modern photovoltaics (PV) solar panels will produce up to 10 watts per square foot of solar panel area. Since Cupertino is generally favorable in terms of weather and Apple will obviously use the latest Solar technology developed in the coming years, that could give Apple over 5,000,000 Watts of power to play with. Additionally, Apple has a few other buildings on campus that could be outfitted with solar roofs. The plans list a photovoltaic roof canopy of 320,000 sq.ft. just on the parking building.
The structure will be outfitted with solar panels around the top of the building. No need power to run air-conditions for 9 months one year. Without doubt, these solar roofs can supply for all lights, computers, and other electronic equipment. Meanwhile, all lights installed in this building will be LED light, for LED light can save more energy than incandescent light. And in outdoor, some street lamps and landscape lamps are solar powered. No worry about raining day, they are of IP68 waterproof grade, and solar panel can store a lot of power.

The new Apple Campus will aim at being self-sufficient. Most of the power for the facilities will come from an “on-site low carbon Central Plant”, according to an Apple Insider report. Apple intends to use alternative energy sources to power the campus, as part of its pledge to use 100 percent renewable energy at its facilities.
