Responding to criticism that its operations relied heavily on fossil fuels, Apple plans to power its main data center entirely on renewable energy by year-end, Reuters reports.

The company will build two solar projects near its data center in North Carolina that will supply a total of 84 GWh of electricity annually, according to Reuters. SunPower Corp. and Bloom Energy are reportedly supplying the equipment for the project, which will cover 250 acres.

Apple also says it plans to convert its other two data centers to coal-free electricity.
