Apple announced it has signed power purchase agreements with one wind and one solar project, both currently under development in Oregon.
The company plans to purchase 200 MW from the Montague Wind Power Project, which will begin operations in Gilliam County by the end of 2018, and 56 MW from Solar Star Oregon II, which comes online in Crook County at the end of this year.
For the first time in decades, the United States got more electricity from renewable sources than nuclear power in March and April.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration said Thursday that electricity production from utility-scale renewable sources exceeded nuclear generation in the most recent months for which data is available. That’s the first time renewable sources have outpaced nuclear since 1984.
