Apple Data Centers Powered with 100% Renewable Energy

March 2013 - Apple recently announced that all of its data centers are now powered 100 percent with renewable energy. Apple installed a 20-megawatt (MW) solar array at its Maiden, North Carolina, LEED platinum certified data center in December 2012. That array is accompanied by an onsite 10-MW fuel cell installation and a second 20-MW solar facility is currently under construction. Apple's new data center in Prineville, Oregon, which is currently under construction, is also being planned to use renewable energy resources.

The company has increased its use of renewable energy by 114 percent since 2010, with 75 percent of its offices now being powered from renewable resources. Apple has achieved 100 percent renewable energy use at its four largest office campuses, located in Ireland, Germany, and California.
