- The tech company will be the biggest single consumer of energy from the new solar facility. It is being constructed on 2,900 acres in rural Monterey County, south of the San Francisco Bay Area where Apple is headquartered.
- The project reflects Apple's concern about climate change, CEO Tim Cook said at an investment conference Tuesday in San Francisco. He added that the company's computer centers already are powered by various forms of renewable energy.
- Arizona-based First Solar Inc. is building the facility, which will have a capacity of 280 megawatts. Apple has signed a 25-year contract for electricity from 130 megawatts of the plant's capacity.
