TechCrunch: Apple nabs itself a renewable power project in Oregon

Apple Nabs Itself A Renewable Power Plant Project in Oregon

Semi-recently I was talking finance with a friend and mentioned that doing nothing with large quantities of cash isn’t the best plan for your finances…like Apple has done in the past. Now though, they make an interesting lateral move. They aren’t the first major computer company to go into renewable energy, which really leads only to the conclusion that running large data centers takes a lot of energy. Though I don’t go into energy in detail on this blog (as I’m paid to do that, so doing it for free would be somewhat of a conflict of interest), I will at least say I am unsurprised that Apple, Google and the like are future-proofing their energy-intensive operations against an uncertain energy future.
