We have recently partnered up with GreenGeeks, the industries leading green web hosting provider – and boy are we glad we did. Many people are surprised when we tell them that the internet is not green and that by no means is the web hosting industry eco-friendly. In fact studies show that by 2005 the web hosting industry used as much energy to power their servers as the equivalent of 14 major power plants. Studies have shown that by the year 2020 that the web hosting industry will be as big of a polluter as the airline industry. Together we can curb that.
In order to compensate for the polluting power that GreenGeeks pulls from the grid they purchase wind energy credits for the energy they consume from the grid. In fact they replace, with wind power, 3 times the amount of energy used by their servers, so if they pull 1X of power from the grid they purchase enough wind energy credits to put back into the grid 3X of power having been produced by wind power. So what does this mean for you? Your website hosted with GreenGeeks will be powered by 300% wind energy, making your website’s carbon footprint negative, and to boot – your website is powered by wind – how cool is that?!
