US: More than 90 percent of Apple is powered by renewable energy

Tech companies lead the way into a greener future

In the United States alone, 94,000,000 Americans now use an iPhone, according to one report. Needless to say, many more exist across the globe. And that’s just iPhones- think of all the iPads, Macbooks and countless other Apple products used in the U.S. and across the world.

That’s why it’s exciting to learn that 93 percent of Apple’s worldwide facilities now reportedly run on renewable energy. It’s also encouraging to hear the company’s goal is to soon go 100 percent renewable.

Apple’s target isn’t surprising when we consider more than half of the total megawatts contracted under wind power purchase agreements were signed by tech companies and corporate buyers, like Apple, Microsoft, Google and other non-utility purchasers.

For example, Microsoft has contracted for 285 megawatts of renewable power, enough for 125,000 U.S. homes, from two off-site wind energy projects. Microsoft’s Director of Energy Strategy Brian Janous has explained this new trend by saying, “As Microsoft works toward a lower carbon energy supply for our cloud services, wind continues to offer an attractive option for achieving this objective in a cost-effective manner.”
