Technology giant Apple Inc. says that all of its data centers now use 100% renewable energy, including power from wind, solar, geothermal and hydro resources.

According to a new company report, Apple has achieved 100% renewable energy use at its data centers - and 75% renewable energy worldwide - through a combination of on-site solar and fuel cell projects, renewable energy credits, and direct purchase of electricity from renewable energy projects.

In California, for example, Apple is powering its Newark data center and Cupertino corporate headquarters with wind energy purchased from nearby wind farms. Apple says that it will continue developing and procuring renewable energy until all of its facilities run on 100% renewables.
