Porsche has joined the ranks of solar-supporting companies Ferrari and Toyota by installing its first U.S. solar array at the Porsche Logistics Facility in Ontario, California. The 372-panel array will be one of the largest in the Ontario area, producing 135,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year and cutting carbon emissions by 50,000 pounds annually. No word on what percentage of the logistics facility will be powered by the sun, but 135,000 kWh is a lot of power–enough to light over 100 average homes for a year.
