Apple + Solar Farm = Environmentally Efficient Data Center


Everyone's favorite phone, tablet and computer manufacturer is adding as many as 171 acres of solar panels to the land that surrounds its massive data center.

Located in North Carolina, Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) data center is expected to be a key component in its mission to revolutionize TV.

Business Insider, which cites a Charlotte Observer report, says that Apple has “approached the construction of the solar farm with the same secrecy it uses in developing new products.” According to BI, Scott Millar – the chief of the Economic Development Corp. in North Carolina – was not even aware of Apple's plans until he saw the erosion control permits.
