Apple now powers all of its worldwide facilities – everything from retail stores to offices like Apple Park – with renewable energy, the company has announced today.

The milestone sees Apple produce 626 megawatts of clean energy globally, courtesy of 25 currently-operational energy projects.

286 megawatts of that came from solar panel generation that came online in 2017 alone.

When they’re complete, it’ll mean in excess of 1.4 gigawatts of energy generation, spread across a total of eleven countries.

As you can guess, therefore, this hasn’t been a milestone that’s been easily – or quickly – reached.

Apple’s data centers have actually been 100-percent renewable energy powered since 2014, in fact.
