Recently the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gave their approval to Apple which means that now the company can go ahead and use the excess energy that they have. Apple has their own renewable energy facilities and solar farms that are located in California, Arizona and Nevada. Now with this approval the extra energy can be sold by the company by supplying 130MW in California, in Arizona they can sell 50 megawatts and in Nevada they have around 20MW. This means that many homes can go ahead and get enough power from all of them combined.
This move is possible though the partnership that is said to be worth around $850 with First solar that is located at California and is a firm which has a sun farm. However, the wait for the approval to sell the excess electricity that they have planed from the latest installations that is presently under construction from their Cupertino Campus 2. Located on 176 acres of land, this is said to be the new headquarters of the company which will be open by next year.
