Going green: Apple to build solar power project in China

Apple has been striving to power all of its facilities worldwide with renewable energy including China. It is building a 40-MW solar power project in China’s southwestern plateau to work toward its environmental and climate commitments, a senior company executive said on Thursday.

The project, which will be able to power 61,000 homes a year, will add 80 million kilowatt hours of clean energy to the grid annually, said Lisa Jackson, vice-president for environmental initiatives at Apple.

“We are excited about the amount because it will generate far more energy than is being used by all of our offices and retail stores in China,” Jackson told Xinhua news agency.

The project will consist of two arrays of solar panels, which will be installed 85 miles apart in Hongyuan county and Zoige County of Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang regions of Sichuan province, Jackson said.

“We will put the clean energy onto the local grid in Sichuan and buy the power wherever the stores and offices are,” she said. After US, China is next on the list.

The company increasingly relies on solar power. In February, it had announced to pay $848 million to buy electricity from a large solar power plant to be built by First Solar.
