Apple data centers completely powered by renewable energy


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.

The company is using a combination of solar, wind, hydro and geothermal power at its data centers in order to reach the 100 percent mark in using renewable energy, and last year finished construction of the U.S.’s largest end user-owned, onsite solar photovoltaic array at its North Carolina data center.
