Apple Launches First Store Fueled 100% On Renewable Energy

By

Apple has launched nearly 500 stores across the world, and their reach has extended into Singapore for the first time. Just last Saturday they opened up Apple Orchard Road, and it’s a little bit different than most of the other stores. This new building is completely fueled by renewable energy sources.

Designs behind the new Apple store in Southeast Asia were created due to Singapore’s commitment to green energy. All business and government buildings are in the process of transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy. It’s a big undertaking considering how tough it is for Singapore to generate electricity from alternative sources. Wind speeds aren’t consistent and generally too slow for moving turbines. There also isn’t a lot of space to install large solar power plants to fuel the population.
