This Is What A 20MW Solar Farm Looks Like

One of the key features of Apple’s upcoming North Carolina data centre is its mammoth field of solar panels, which aim to provide the data centre with the majority of its power. Although the solar farm in progress is a whopping 100 acres and aims to put out 20 megawatts, that’s only 60 per cent of the data centre’s expected draw.

Even unfinished, the field of panels is staggering in its magnitude. Kind of makes you wish you had one in your backyard, right? That and a backyard big enough to fit it. [GigaOm via Engadget]
