Apple has announced in its Facilities Report it is to construct the largest end user owned, onsite solar array in the US.

The rumours surrounding the technology company’s renewable energy goals have been put to bed. The 20MW facility, in Maiden, North Carolina, will be installed on 100 acres of land, supplying 42 million kWh of renewable energy annually.  Apple will also be building a fuel cell installation, powered by 100% biogas to provide more than 40 million kWh of baseload renewable energy annually.

Proudly, Apple also states the Maiden Data Centre won the LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council, demonstrating the companies commitment to green energy.
