Apple Goes Completely Green; Now Powered With 100 Percent Clean Energy

Every single Apple building around the world now runs on 100% renewable energy

Every single Apple building around the world now runs on 100% renewable energy

Every retail store, office and data centre - facilities in 43 countries across the globe. Most of these 26 projects are of the wind-generating variety, and the company invested more than $3.5 billion into them. It's not just solar, either: there are also wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydro generation, along with various energy storage technologies to actually save that electricity until it's required.

The company also says nine more manufacturing partners have committed to power all Apple production with 100 percent clean energy, taking the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

We're pleased to announce that in partnership with Walmart, Target, Johnson & Johnson, and Google, the state of Georgia has approved a new program that would allow companies to buy renewable energy directly through the state's largest utility, Georgia Power.

Apple has been focused for years on making its products and its operations more environmentally friendly and has long said it aimed to run its operations entirely on renewable energy.

Apple's new spaceship campus has solar panels on the roof.

What we've accomplished in partnership with Georgia Power and other major corporate energy buyers in the region is a testament to the important role that businesses can play in unlocking access to renewable energy. "After years of hard work, we're proud to have reached this significant milestone".

The iconic Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, was built with renewables in mind from day one, with the roof of the building covered in a 17 MW rooftop solar installation that is paired with 4 MW of biogas fuel cells.

The suppliers that pledge to use more clean energy know they will have "a leg up" against competitors for Apple's business, Jackson told Reuters. This makes Google the first public cloud and company of its size to be powered 100 per cent by renewable energy.

Apple now has 25 operational renewable energy projects around the world, totalling 626 megawatts of generation capacity, with 286 megawatts of solar PV generation coming online in 2017.

Apple's announcement comes less than a week after Google said that it had purchased enough clean energy from Google-supplying wind or solar farms to "match" its consumption of electricity in 2017 - 3 gigawatts.
