As we build and expand data centers and offices to meet growing demand for Google's products, we constantly add renewable energy to our portfolio to match 100 percent of our energy use. Apple's announcement today comes bundled with news that another 9 manufacturers have committed to powering their Apple-specific production with 100% clean energy, which takes the total number of suppliers in the program up to 23.
Still, around 26% of the country's total electricity production (link in Chinese) came from renewables, which is better than the 12% figure for the world as a whole. For Apple CEO Tim Cook, energy conservation and sustainable development initiatives are a matter of pride, and he vows to keep to this uplifting task in the future as well. We're pleased to announce that in partnership with Walmart, Target, Johnson & Johnson, and Google, the state of Georgia has approved a new program that would allow companies to buy renewable energy directly through the state's largest utility, Georgia Power.
The company also has 15 more projects in construction. Once built, it will have over 1.4GW of renewable energy generation across 11 countries. The company's new headquarters, Apple Park in Cupertino, California, runs on renewable energy, including a 17-megawatt rooftop solar panel project and four megawatts of biogas fuel cells. It is all controlled by a microgrid with battery storage, and gives clean energy back to the public grid during periods of low occupancy. Incidentally, the fact that Apple reached the 100% mark this year isn't all that surprising given that Apple last year noted that 96% of its facilities were running on renewable energy. In addition, over 85 suppliers have registered for Apple's Clean Energy Portal, an online platform that Apple developed to help suppliers identify commercially viable renewable energy solutions in regions around the world.
