By: Gizbot Bureau

Apple says it will spend USD 850 million on a massive solar energy project that will generate enough power for the computer giant's new office campus, retail stores and its other California operations.

The tech company will be the biggest single consumer of energy from the new solar farm, which is being constructed on 1,300 acres in rural Monterey County, south of the San Francisco Bay Area where Apple is headquartered.
