The ‘Green-Factor’ is growing stronger and stronger in web hosting industry. Not long after FatCow’s switch to green energy, StartLogic launched their eco-friendly policy and they (offices and our data centers) are now 100% powered by wind energy.
How StartLogic is green?
Like most other green hosting companies, generating wind energy on site isn’t feasible for StartLogic.
What the hosting company did is to offset all of their electricity usagee with wind-generated Renewable Energy Certificates. According to the officials, such changes in operation prevent the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year – which can be translated to:
- Planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees; or,
- Not driving 6.1 million miles; or,
- Removing 510 cars from the road.
Going Green = Buzz = Better Business (most likely)
Well, as said earlier (in FatCow Goes Green), I’m glad to see web hosting companies are taking up their responsibility and putting effort in protecting our environment. Then again, I believe such ‘Going Green’ policy benefits more than just the environment. From business stand point, going green simply means buzz; which in turns equal to more sales most of the time. Agree? :)
