Apple now powered by 100% clean energy WHAT

Want to hear some good tech news?

 

Apple has announced that its global facilities, including all retail stores, offices, data centers, and more, are powered with 100 percent clean energy.

 

This number includes facilities in 43 countries, including the United States, UK, China, and India.

 

From the Sauce, Tim Cook:

 

“We’re committed to leaving the world better than we found it. After years of hard work we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone, we’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it.”

 

To accomplish this feat, Apple has invested in and constructed renewable energy facilities all around the world, such as solar arrays, wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydration generation systems, and include the solar panels on the roof of Apple Park, its newest campus, 485 megawatts of wind and solar projects across China, solar facilities in Reno, Nevada and Maiden, North Carolina, more than 300 rooftop solar systems in Japan, and an 800-rooftop renewable energy system in Singapore.

 

Since 2016, 96 percent of Apple facilities have been run on renewable energy, so this 100% clean energy target having been met feels like they finally got the cigar. You know, as in up until now they’ve been ‘close, but no cigar’?

 

We’ll be here all week. Yay for good tech news!
