Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) recently announced that the technology company’s data centers are now powered entirely by renewable energy sources. The announcement comes as Apple moves to power all of its facilities with renewable energy.
The company stated that the percentage of renewable energy used throughout all its facilities is at 75 percent. In 2010, the company was using 35 percent renewable energy globally.
