Although Apple has been working on multiple installation of renewable energy, the overall percentage of Apple facilities running on green energy is not too high. And that is precisely why Apple has been criticized in the past for relying heavily on ‘dirty energy.’ Now, it would seem that the company plans to change this.


Apple’s main data center is located in Maiden, N.C. The company has now revealed plans that it will eventually be running this data center entirely on renewable energy.

Currently, according to Apple, it is building two solar array installation in the area which, upon completion, will be able to furnish 84 million kilowatts-hour of power on annual basis, sufficient to fuel up the data center.

Another renewable energy installation that Apple is working on is bio-gas fuel cell installation. This, combined with energy from solar arrays, will be able to provide for about 60 percent of the total power required by the data center. The rest of the 40%, Apple says, will be acquired from ‘local and regional sources’ that are renewable.

Apple has started an all-new section of its environment-related website in which it posted all these details. Tech companies have come under grind from environmental activists over their use of dirty energy. The result is that the companies are moving towards a model where they provide most of the power required through clear sources. Apple sure seems to leading the pack with its extensive clear energy facilities and hopes that this does set a good precedent for others to follow.
