The facility eventually will power Wynn's newest 280,000-square-foot meeting and convention expansion with 100 percent renewable energy.

In addition, another nine of the company's manufacturing partners have committed to ensuring all of their Apple production work is powered by 100 per cent renewable electricity, the tech giant announced.

Filling out the last 4% required Apple to find renewable energy sources in some of its more remote retail stores and offices. "After years of hard work we're proud to have reached this significant milestone", said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, in a press release.

Kenya bounce second-string New Zealand out in Hong Kong Sevens semifinals

The world added more solar power capacity than any other type of energy in 2017, outpacing all fossil fuels, according to a new report from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It said 286 megawatts of solar PV generation came online previous year, and it has 15 more projects in construction.

Across the world Apple and partners are working on developing renewable energy projects that represent a diverse range of energy sources from solar arrays to wind farms, biogas fuel cells and micro-hydro generation systems. While in Singapore, Apple says it adapted to the nation state's tiny footprint and installed solar panels on the rooftops of 800 buildings.

In total, 23 Apple suppliers have now made a renewables commitment.

KKR beat RCB by four wickets in IPL
Narine, earlier, had the record of scoring the fastest 50 in IPL off 15 balls which KL Rahul broke against DD earlier on Sunday. Lynn may also be skinny at [3.3] but he's the key wicket and could deliver the profit whether he ruins the match tip or not.

Apple's shops, offices and data centres across 43 countries have achieved the milestone, said the California-based company, which set out its stall as a major spur to renewables project development as well as a green energy consumer. That puts clean energy back into the power grid in greater measure than the company uses. It's a stunning achievement, and being done by the world's most profitable company is a resounding statement for those who think renewable energy simply costs too much.

Apple has been focused for years on making its products and its operations more environmentally friendly and has long said it aimed to run its operations entirely on renewable energy.

Apple's products have created entire markets and categories with the iPod, iPhone, and iPad leading the charge into their respective categories, and the announcement today makes it clear that Apple continues to push the envelope with respect to renewable energy.
