Apple’s Data Center in North Carolina is now fully solar powered… with a little help from some sheep too


Apple continues to make great strides and show a real interest in environmental policies and the search for renewable energy sources. Now its new data center in North Carolina is fully solar powered

Apple is certainly not perfect, like no one in this world on the other hand, but at least it is trying to improve many of the aspects concerning its company policy, and in particular those relating to respect for the environment. Thus all its Data Centers, huge structures destined to collect the servers for iCloud and the various services of the Cupertino company, are built in such a way that the energy required for their operation derives from completely renewable sources, in particular using gigantic solar farm. So one of the most important Data Centers, the one in North Carolina, is now completely powered by solar panels alone, but with a really strange little help … inside the sheep farm, which by eating the blades of grass avoid their excessive growth and therefore possible damage to the expensive panels.
