As technology is created we continue to find different ways to help clean the Earth, whether its removing oil from the oceans, protecting animals, or even planting trees. Even using solar energy can help lighten up our use of the Earth’s energy sources. You know we do what we can to help the Earth look and feel better. And today we have news that Apple, yes the mobile and PC tech company; has decided that they to want to do their part in cleaning us the world, so they decide to invest a whopping $848 million in a First Solar plant that is located in California’s Monterey County.
Apple plans to use clean energy sources to power up its buildings. Apple Chief believes that this investment should generate enough electricity to power 60,000 homes. So what’s included in this deal you say? We all know that at the end of the day, Apple is a business, and all businesses are in business to make money right? From this investment Apple will get a 130-megawatt supply from the solar farm to light up their buildings such as its future spaceship-like campus, while the remaining 150 megawatts will go to Pacific Gas & Energy’s grid.
As far as we know this is the largest solar industry commercial deal to date and it proves that both companies are out to be more effective than many of the other green energy initiatives we’ve seen in the technology industry.
