Apple Opposes EPA's Repeal Effort On The Clean Power Plan, Saying It Would Increase Investment Uncertainty For Them

According to Reuters, Apple opposes proposed repeal of Clean Power Plan in United States, in which the company said repealing the policy would subject them and the manufacturing partners to increased investment uncertainty if the plan is reversed.

"Repealing the Clean Power Plan will subject consumers like Apple and our large manufacturing partners to increased investment uncertainty," the California-based company said in a filing to the agency.

Apple, which says it runs its U.S. operations fully on renewable energy such as wind and solar power, added that repeal of the plan would also threaten development and investments that have already been made in renewable power.

The "Clean Power Plan" was originally proposed by former U.S. President Obama back in 2014. President Trump signed an executive order to review the plan, but later decided not to implement it. The plan required U.S. power plants to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.

Apple has always had a strong passion when it comes to environmental promise, as the Cupertino giant uses renewable energy sources like solar, hydro, and wind to power its data centers completely, with 96 percent used by its facilities worldwide.

We know we can. That’s why 100 percent of the electricity we use to power our data centers, and 96 percent used by our facilities worldwide, comes from energy sources like solar, hydro, and wind power. So every time you send an iMessage or ask Siri a question, it’s powered by renewable energy.

In a response to Apple, ERA says that it "will be considering the comments on the policy's elimination.
