Applied Materials, a Santa Clara, Calif.-based provider of solar products using nanomanufacturing technology, has increased its commitment to Santa Clara Green Power, a renewable energy program sponsored by Silicon Valley Power (SVP), by purchasing 8,220 MWh of renewable energy per year. On behalf of Applied Materials, SVP will purchase renewable energy credits from newly constructed wind farms and solar photovoltaic projects located within California.

By increasing participation in Santa Clara Green Power, Applied Materials now leads the circle of other businesses in Santa Clara that support renewable energy, the company says. Last year, Applied Materials purchased 70% of the output of one large-scale wind turbine on an annual basis - the equivalence of 2,279 MWh.
