Apple planning Nevada solar farm for it’s cloud data center

Apple is building a new data center in  Reno, Nevada, and they’re planning to powering it with 100% renewable energy.   Plans call for a 18 megawatt photovoltaic solar farm to be built in Yerington, which is right outside Reno. The new solar farm will completely power Apple’s new data center and also provide electricity to the local power grid.

The Fort Churchill Solar Array will consist of 137 acres of concentrating PV solar panels.  Apple’s partnering with NV Energy, Inc for the construction.   They’re figuring it will take about eight months to build.
