Apple's Solar Panel Farm is Close to Completion

Apple is nearing completion of its solar farm in Maiden, North Carolina, reports GigaOm.

There's a lot more panels installed on the field now. When done this first solar farm will stretch across 100 acres and generate 20 MW. Apple is also building another 20 MW solar farm near by. The solar panels and trackers come from California's SunPower. SunPower makes higher efficiency solar panels, which are placed on trackers that follow the sun throughout the day.

Take a look at some photos below taken by WCNC-TV.

Better idea is to mount these things on the rooftops of building structures. This looks like poor land utilization...but still - kudos for the green effort. Unfortunately, despite the appearance of "green", PV generates roughly 3-4 metric tons of toxic waste for each metric ton of product. How green is that?

The area was mainly brush and small young trees. Also I read somewhere they are replanting several acres of trees.

+1I have never used it, but I work with a few people that have SGS II pneohs and their reception around work is almost nothing. Downloads would stop for so long they just fail out.From what I understand from friends that have it around her, you have to live in the right place and not be moving around throughout the day too much to have it be reliable. I'm not bagging in TMo, I'm just seeing what friends/coworkers are experiencing and deciding I'd rather have uninterrupted service for a little bit more money.
