Green Web Hosting
Did You Know?
- The internet’s infrastructure makes a HUGE environmental impact.
- Data centers account for 3 to 4 percent of ALL electricity used.
- The average web server produces the same climate impact as a 15-mpg SUV.
So as a buyer of web hosting, what can be done to minimize your climate impact?
Switching your hosting company to SpiralSpark is a start!
SpiralSpark’s web servers are powered 300% by wind-generated electricity.
Our hosting also includes “real person” tech support
directly from SpiralSpark.
How Our Green Hosting Works
In the USA, wind farms generate two things: electricity and Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Each REC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable electricity that the wind farm has delivered to the power grid, thereby reducing the need for one MWh of conventional electricity. To make our web servers powered 300% by wind power, 3 megawatt-hours of RECs are purchased for each MWh of electricity our web servers use.
Why do we need RECs? Once an electron is generated and delivered to an interconnected power grid’s “pool” of energy, it’s impossible to tell whether that electron was generated by renewable or conventional means. They’re not perfect, but RECs are a good way to track renewable energy generation and to certify its use.
By hosting your website with us, you can neutralize environmental impact while also helping to reverse it!
