Solar power is on the rise. In fact, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists, the amount installed in the United States grew 485 percent between 2010 and 2013. Repeat, 485 percent! That’s a lot of solar power.
And why not? The cost of solar power continues to decrease, it generates electricity in a clean and reliable way, and it saves money. Most people would call that a win-win-win. Not only is it becoming more popular among households, but big companies are also buying into the solar power phenomenon. Below are seven businesses you may not have realized use solar power.

Combining wind and solar, the technology and telecom company’s total annual usage is 3,107,050,000 kilowatts.
