Apple has received regulatory approval for a 20 megawatt solar farm across the street from its data center in Maiden, North Carolina, reports MacRumors.

The Public Staff presented this matter to the Commission at its Regular Staff Conference on May 14, 2012. The Public Staff recommended that the Commission approve the application and issue a certificate of public convenience and necessity for construction of a 20 MW solar photovoltaic electric generating facility to be located at 6028 Startown Road, Maiden, North Carolina.

After careful consideration, the Commission finds good cause to approve the application and issue the attached certificate of public convenience and necessity for the proposed 20 MW solar photovoltaic electric generating facility.


Apple plans to have the solar farm installed by November 1st, with operation to begin by December 21st.
