Apple to power data centres with renewable energy - Data & Server Racks
The IT giant - criticised by Greenpeace over its heavy use of coal - will move to renewable sources at its 500,000-square-foot data centre in Maiden, North Carolina, by the end of 2012.
None of the firm's three major centres - including those at Newark, California, and Prineville, Oregon - will use coal power.
Chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer claimed that Apple is leading the industry.
"All three of our data centres will be coal free, which is an industry first for anybody of our size," he stated.
Last month, Greenpeace singled out Apple, Amazon.com and Twitter as being firms which are failing to use clean enough sources of energy.
