green-hosting.gifBy purchasing Renewable Energy Credits equal to the cost of powering and cooling the servers the data center in Houston Texas is now 130% wind powered.


Data centers are one of the largest consumers of power. Just leave a full size computer on at home 24 /7 and you will see a noticeable increase in your hydro bill.

Just for this one data center the environmental effect will be equal to:

  1. Removing 444 cars from the road for a year, or
  2. Powering 321 homes with clean energy for a year, or
  3. Saving 5,654 barrels of oil, or
  4. Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year
It shouldn't be long before the same thing happens for servers in Canada. We just need to build some more wind farms first.
