Synaptics Headquarters to be Powered by 100% Renewable Energy Through New Partnership with San José Clean Energy
Choosing TotalGreen means their headquarters will be powered by solar
SAN JOSE, Calif. (September 21, 2020) – Synaptics Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA), the leading provider of human interface solutions, announced a decision to power their headquarters with 100% renewable energy through TotalGreen, a program available through San Jose Clean Energy (SJCE).
SJCE's TotalGreen electric service sources renewable, emission free energy from solar generation. TotalGreen is a simple, cost-effective way for companies to reduce their impact on the planet, which is exactly what drove Synaptics to upgrade their service.
"We are thrilled to be able to power our San José facility with 100% renewable energy," said Michael Hurlston, president and CEO of Synaptics. "We recognize the importance of protecting the environment for future generations and are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. TotalGreen helps us achieve that goal."
The partnership with SJCE is part of Synaptics' greater sustainability initiative. The company is committed to increasing use of renewable energy to 50% across its global facilities by 2022. In addition, Synaptics recently upgraded their HVAC systems, increased temperature in their datacenters, and converted to LED lighting to reduce building energy consumption.

"We are pleased to welcome Synaptics as our newest TotalGreen corporate partner," said Lori Mitchell, Community Energy Department Director, which operates SJCE. "It's paramount that local government and the private sector work together to drive investment in cleaner energy to fight climate change and improve quality of life in our communities."
SJCE is the City's Community Choice Energy program. Community Choice programs allow local governments like the City of San José to buy electricity from cleaner sources, while the investor-owned utility (PG&E, for San José) continues to distribute the electricity, maintain the powerlines, respond to power outages, and provide billing.
SJCE plays a crucial role in Climate Smart San José, the City's climate action plan, and is dedicated to increasing the amount of renewable energy in its power supply. To date, SJCE has contracted for nearly 500 megawatts (MW) of new renewable energy and 10 MW of battery storage that will come online over the next few years.
Earlier this year, SJCE partnered with developer Terra-Gen on two long-term power purchase agreements that will provide San José with 162 MW of solar that will be built in Kern County. One of the agreements includes a particularly innovative approach that guarantees delivery of 62 MW renewable energy from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day. This will help meet SJCE's goal of providing more renewable energy during all hours of the day to increase reliability, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and lower greenhouse gas emissions. SJCE expects to announce another power purchase agreement for wind energy later this year.
