New Apple Plant Will Run Entirely On Clean Energy
Monday, Nov 11 2013
This week Apple announced its plans to open a new factory in Mesa, Arizona — a facility that “will run on 100 percent renewable energy from day one.” The move will bring a manufacturing boost to the state, creating 2,000 new jobs, all without requiring additional energy from Mesa.
“Banking on Arizona’s abundant sunshine, Apple will create a new solar grid in the city for the facility’s power,” Gigaom reported. In addition to solar, the plant will also use geothermal energy, according to Forbes.
