Greenpeace recently lambasted Apple over using ‘dirty’ coal energy for most of the power that is used up by its facilities. Although Apple is already working on a solar energy farm as well as a cell energy farm, both of these combined would still account for only a part of Apple’s overall power usage. Now, the tech giant has revealed plans of constructing a data center that would be 100% green.


Greenpeace had alleged that Apple was primarily using coal energy to power up its iCloud data center. Apple did acknowledge the report, which pretty much means that Greenpeace’s statistics are not too far off. However, Apple also stated at the same time that it has plans of going more green in the coming days.

The company claims to be working on a data center that will be 100% green which simply means that it will be making use of only clean energy. The data center is being built in Prineville, Oregon over an area of 10,000 sq. feet. Although Apple hasn’t revealed exactly what kind of ‘clean’ energy it will be using, the most probable choice to power up an entire data center would be solar energy.

Apple already is working on two clean energy farms, both of these being in North Carolina. One of the plants will be converting solar energy into usable energy for Apple’s facilities while another will be procuring energy through the fuel cell installations. While Apple still has a long way to go along the road of being an environment-friendly company, it is at least trying and heading the right way.
