NV Energy and Apple announced this week they have reached an agreement to build 200 megawatts of additional solar energy in Nevada by early 2019.

The projects will support Apple’s renewable energy needs for its Reno data centre.

“Investing in innovative clean energy sources is vital to Apple’s commitment to reaching, and maintaining, 100% renewable energy across all our operations,” said Apple’s vice president for environment, policy and social initiatives Lisa Jackson. “Our partnership with NV Energy helps assure our customers their iMessages, FaceTime video chats and Siri inquiries are powered by clean energy, and supports efforts to offer the choice of green energy to Nevada residents and businesses.”

Apple will also sell 5 megawatts to commercial and residential customers through NV Energy.
