137-acre solar array planned by Apple for Reno Data Center

Apple is to construct a major solar farm in the Nevada desert as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainable energy. The technology giant is planning to use mirrors to concentrate the sun’s energy onto solar panels, generating 43.5 million Kw/hr of energy per annum to be used in its new data centre in Reno. In total the solar array will stretch across 137 acres and is currently being referred to as the 'Ft. Churchill Solar Array'.

A statement on Apple’s website reads: “Our experiences in Maiden, Prineville, and Newark will help ensure that our next data center, to be located in Reno, Nevada, will live up to the same high standards for environmental responsibility. In Reno, we will take advantage of Nevada’s excellent natural solar radiation and geothermal resources to completely meet the energy needs of our data center.”
