This past summer, the magazine's corporate philanthropy issue highlighted Applied's partnership with economic and environmental sustainability nonprofit GRID Alternatives, where employees volunteered 1,700 hours of their time to install 14 rooftop solar panel power systems on Habitat for Humanity homes in the South Bay Area over the past two years. All together, employees helped enable savings totaling $311,000 for families over the 30-year life-span of the systems. You can read more about the partnership here and on the Applied Materials blog.
