A renewable company based in New Mexico has been chosen for a solar project that will power Facebook’s data centre.

Affordable Solar is to build a 30MW project for the social network’s data centre in Los Lunas.

Construction of the first of three 10MW sites is expected to begin in mid-2017.

The project will include a total of 115,000 panels, providing renewable electricity for 100% of the data centre’s operations.

Facebook’s data centre in Odense, Denmark will also be fully powered by renewable energy.
