  • Apple claims that clean energy powers all its facilities

Apple has topped rival Microsoft by reaching its 100 per cent renewable target in facilities across 43 countries. We collaborated for over two years to help build this program, which passes the costs directly to corporate buyers, while adding more low-priced, renewable electricity to the state's energy mix. DTE Energy will also be installing new solar energy capacity, but solar will play a relatively small role in the company's future efforts concerning clean power. The company has also announced that its nine additional manufacturing partners have committed to power all of their Apple production with 100 percent clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

The news follows a similar announcement from Google, which claimed in December it had attained a goal of 100 percent renewable energy.

Alphabet's Google previous year purchased enough renewable energy to cover all of its electricity consumption worldwide.

The move is in line with the company's 2015 plan to push toward 100-percent renewable energy, a list that includes all of Apple's data centers as of 2014.

Interestingly, tech rival Microsoft Corp broke new ground by signing the biggest single corporate solar agreement in United States history earlier this year.

In fact, the company has generated more green energy than it needs to power its data centres and offices from renewable sources including solar and wind power.
