judgecorp writes "Stung by continued criticism from Greenpeace and protests at Apple's headquartersover its use of electricity from non-renewable sources, Apple has promised that its data centre in Maiden, North Carolina will use 100 percent renewable electricity,, 60 percent of it generated by Apple itself. The update is possible because it is building a second giant solar array, and because its data centre only needs 20MW at full capacity, instead of the 100MW which Greenpeace had estimated."
