As the U. S. looks to develop cleaner, renewable energy sources, Apple announced their facilities are 100% powered by renewable sources. While all facilities are not connected to clean energy, renewable energy is being put into the power grid offsetting its use of fossil fuels. Clean energy is being utilized in its stores, offices and data centers. Apple has commitment from over 20 partners to build Apple products using renewable energy. With the depletion of natural energy resources and the impact of fossil fuels on our atmosphere, these innovative approaches offer hope of ensuring a livable planet for future generations.
