Apple to double its already massive fuel cell farm in North Carolina.

Apple has decided to more than double the amount of fuel cells it is using to generate power at its data center in North Carolina, according to filings with the North Carolina Utility Commission, and first reported by The Charlotte Observer. Fuel cell provider Bloom Energy is installing 50 Bloom boxes at the site in the city of Maiden, which will produce 10 MW of electricity — previously Apple had been developing a 4.8 MW fuel cell project at the site.

The 4.8 MW portion of the site has been up and testing since October, according to Apple, and the company expects the full 10 MW farm to be installed and online by January 2013. Apple filed to boost the size of the project last month. However, filings about the cost of the project were kept confidential.
