Continuing its initiative to provide solar energy for its expansive data centers, Apple is looking to build a solar farm and data center in Prineville, Oregon. The company has already built solar farms near data centers in North Carolina and Nevada.
Not only will this solar farm provide clean energy for the company’s data center, Apple also plans to sell energy back to the local utility.
