Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV? Green Mountain Boys Hosting and their parnters host over 4,000,000 websites on its shared and reseller web hosting servers. That means a lot of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions. So we asked ourselves, What can we do to be part of the climate change solution? We took steps to minimize our environmental impact at the office, but still we weren’t satisfied.
We then switched to 36% more efficient servers, but still we weren’t satisfied! All of our shared and reseller servers are now 130% wind powered! That’s right! 130%! We’re not just neutralizing our environmental impact, we’re reversing it! Green Mountain Boys Hosting and their partners have purchased certified Renewable Energy Credits representing 130% of the electricity used to both power and cool every last one of our shared and reseller servers!
Just how big a dent in climate change does that make? It’s the equivalent of: Removing 444 cars from the road for a year, or Powering 321 homes with clean energy for a year, or Saving 5,654 barrels of oil, or Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year Click Here to view our Green Certificate Investing in wind power close to home! All of our wind credits are generated here in the good ol’ US of A! While we can’t build a wind farm here in the Adirondacks, we’re doing the next best thing and investing in renewable energy close to home! Green-e Certified RECs All of our REC’s have been registered, verified, and retired from the market.
