Apple’s goal is to get their whole Mac-dom entirely powered by renewables. And most recently, they’ve looked to Newton for help. (Get it? Apples? Newton? It’s hilarious!)
The tech giant already has three solar farms and a 10-megawatt fuel cell installation, as well as a few data centers, scattered around Catawba County. Now the county has signed a new lease allowing Apple to build a renewable energy production facility on 3.7 acres of land near Newton. The facility will treat methane from the Blackburn Resource Recovery Facility to create electricity.
