Bloom Box

So, today I went to lunch with my brother Jason (that's not him to the right by the way)

Jason works at PayPal, which is separate from eBay but when referred to, it's usually just referred to as being a part of eBay.

Apparently a month ago, PayPal was on 60 Minutes for being one of only 5 companies using a new ground-breaking type of renewable energy called a Bloom Box. And apparently, my brother was on the campus when they took the footage for 60 Minutes and he got to meet Leslie Stahl!

PayPal is now considered the most energy efficient company in the Silicon Valley, and my brother works in the most energy efficient building!

According to my brother, 70% of the building is fueled by Bloom Boxes, 13% by solar panels, and the rest by usual means of electricity.


Here's the link to the article, if you want more information:
