Last year e-commerce giant eBay unveiled its largest solar installation to date today, situated atop its “Topaz” data center located in South Jordan, Utah. The 665 kilowatt solar power system, designed and installed by SPG Solar, featuring 72,000 square feet of solar panels and covers nearly the entire roof of the data center. That’s about 10 percent of the power required to operate the Topaz facility.
