The tech giant is investing in a pair of 200-meter tall wind turbines to help power its newly opened data center in Viborg, Denmark.
Apple’s commitment to powering itself entirely with carbon-neutral energy by 2030 is getting a boost in Europe thanks to the company’s investment in a pair of gigantic wind turbines. The massive turbines are being built in Esbjerg, Denmark, and will stand 200 meters, or 656 feet, tall, making them two of the largest onshore wind turbines in the world. To put their size in perspective, the average onshore turbine in the United States is 466 feet tall, and the tallest is only 574 feet, making the two Esbjerg turbines nearly 100 feet taller.
The twin Esbjerg turbines will generate 62 GWh per year, or enough energy to power 20,000 homes, and will supply power to Apple’s recently opened Viborg data center, which Apple said
