Apple Wants Your Internet To Be Powered By The Sun

The idea of using the sun’s power has been around for as long as I can remember. “Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly with concentrated solar power (CSP), which normally focuses the sun’s energy to boil water, which is then used to provide power,” Wikipedia explains. While there have been solar powered golf carts, cars, phone chargers, and generators there has never been solar powered Internet until now.

The innovative minds at Apple are looking to build a solar farm in order to power their data center in Nevada. “Apple Inc said it plans to build a new solar farm with NV Energy Inc for power supply to its new data center in Reno, Nevada, a major step towards its goal of having its data centers run on renewable energy,” the Huffington Post reported.

This isn’t the first solar powered data center Apple has created. Their data center in North Carolina is their largest data center and it too is run by solar power. Is this how all of our Internet will be powered in the future? With everyone pushing to use renewable energy, this definitely seems to be an efficient way to run these data centers.
