Apple's approach to solar power

Gigaom have taken an in-depth look at how Apple produces solar power for its data centers. (it pains me not to write ‘centre’ but they are American so I guess their spelling is correct).

My favourite part is their approach to keeping the grass short under the solar arrays.

Apple manages the grass under the panels in a variety of ways, but one of those is a little more unusual. Apple works with a company that ropes in sheep that eat the grass on a portion of the solar farm; when the sheep finish grazing on one spot, they’re moved to the next.
