  • Apple Investing In Solar

    A recent article in Forbes discusses Apple's plans to build a solar farm in North Carolina. With green solution and energy becoming more and more important, it is no surprise that Apple is making moves. John Platt of Forbes discusses more:

    Permits dug up by the Charlotte Observer have revealed Apple Inc.’s plan to build a gigantic solar farm to help power its recently built $1 billion data center in North Carolina. Apple has not formally announced the project and did not respond to the Observer’s request to confirm it, but work to clear the land for construction has already begun, angering some nearby residents.

    According to the plans — which are visible at the website Apple Insider — Apple will reshape part of the slope of the 171-acre vacant lot next to its Project Dolphin data center to make it more suitable for solar panels. Engineering plans contained in the permits show that Apple would protect nearby creeks by making sure the soil moved for the project does not end up in local waterways. The permit does not mention how much of the 171 acres would be devoted to solar panels, but it does say that multiple gravel roads would be built to access the structures.

    A county engineer told the paper that more formal plans for the solar farm would come when Apple files for a building permit.
