Apple plans Arizona factory that will run on renewable energy
Apple plans to build a components plant in Mesa, Ariz., that will run entirely on renewable energy. It will be Apple's latest move to expand its domestic manufacturing operations. Most of the company's products are made overseas, and Apple has been under pressure to invest at home. The project will create more than 2,000 jobs, Apple said in a brief statement to the IDG News Service on Monday. That figure includes 700 manufacturing jobs created in the first year and about 1,300 jobs in construction and other fields, according to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. Apple said it will work with Salt River Project, an electric utility in central Arizona, to create "green energy sources" to power the facility. "Their investment in renewable energy will also be greening our power grid, and creating significant new solar and geothermal power sources for the state," Brewer said in a statement. GT Advanced Technologies, a crystal materials manufacturer, said it will own and operate furnaces and related equipment at the plant, where it will employ more than 700 people. GT said it had entered into a multiyear agreement to supply Apple with sapphire material. Apple has said that it would invest $100 million this year in domestic production of Macintosh systems, and that it would make one of its Mac lines exclusively in the U.S. In May, the company said it would make some Mac parts in Texas. download crack serial number for internet manager download convert mp4 to mp3 software download 3 doors down jay z here without you lyrics download itunes music purchased on ipad download vlc media player italiano windows download gifts and curses mp3 download uc browser universal version download angry birds to lg phone download adobe flash player for samsung gt s5620 download flash player 10 apk
