Apple confirmed as Bloom Energy's customer
CNet confirmed today that Bloom Energy will be supplying fuel cells to Apple. This will go toward powering Apple's North Carolina data center.
GigaOM originally reported last month that Bloom Energy would be Apple's supplier for the fuel-cell farm. There will be 4.8 megawatts of biogas fuel cells, what the company calls Bloom Boxes, powering all those servers. Apple also uses biogas fuel cells at the Cupertino campus.
It's not the only eco-friendly technology Apple is using in Maiden, N.C. Apple is building the largest user-owned solar array in the country as well and has received LEED Platinum certification for its work.
