What Apple is doing in North Carolina
Our favorite Cupertino, California fruit company is building stuff in the North Carolina back country — think Deliverance — and, because Apple has taken measures to obscure the details, some people have taken to the air to find out for themselves. Really.
Previously, the Fairer Platform posted a video shot in the skies above Apple’s North Carolina data center and the ongoing construction. Whereas the company has said they’re building the nation’s largest non-utility bio-gas fuel cell and solar array power plants, the precise details haven’t been spelled out by the company.
The folks at Wired have laid hands on a hi-res aerial photo of the site and offered up their version of what’s happening: 1.) iCloud data center and server farm, 2.) Believed to be the site of Apple’s 4.8 megawatt bio-gas fuel cell power plant and 3.) 20 megawatt solar array covering 100 acres.
Seems reasonable enough to me — what’s your take?
