Adobe said Tuesday that it will partially power its headquarters in San Jose with Bloom Energy fuel cell servers.

The deal for Bloom represents the biggest commercial fuel cell installation to date. Overall, Adobe will get a third of its electricity from Bloom boxes, according to a statement.

Specifically, Adobe installed 12 Bloom Energy Servers on the 5th floor of its Adobe West Tower. Each server is about the size of a parking space and has thousands of Bloom fuel cells. Bloom boxes convert air and biogas into electricity.  A server can generate enough electricity to power 100 homes.

Bloom Energy had its coming out party on 60 Minutes back in February.
