Apple's data center in Maiden, North Carolina is the location of the nation's largest end-user-owned solar photovoltaic array, and the array produces onsite renewable energy to the iDataCenter. This 100-acre, 20-megawatt (MW) facility has an annual production capacity of 42 million kWh of clean, low-carbon, renewable energy. The 1:20-minute video has no sound, but the images provide a dazzling view of the acres of photovoltaics. The solar facility is part of Apple's approach to environmental responsibility.
