In today’s digital world, electricity is consumed by almost everything. In fact, the internet consumes about 10% of the world’s electricity. With global warming on the rise, we understand your concerns about the energy that your hosting consumes. That’s why Van City Studios is now greener than ever with 300% Wind Powered Web Hosting.
We’ve accomplished this by using RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates) to match the energy we use with 300% energy from renewable sources. This means that for every kilowatt hour of electricity used to host your website, another one and one-half kilowatt hours of electricity generated by renewable sources is pumped back into the power grid.
Did you know?
The internet releases around 300m tonnes of CO2 a year – as much as all the coal, oil and gas burned in Turkey or Poland, or more than half of the fossil fuels burned in the UK.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO MINIMIZE YOUR IMPACT ON THE CLIMATE?
Well, if you’re not already a customer, you can switch your hosting to Van City Studios and choose from one of our great shared or VPS plans.
Beyond that, there are myriad of ways to go green in your personal life. Most of them are totally painless, for example turning off your computer at night, rather than leaving it in sleep mode, or using compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescents. Many of them will save you money in the long run.
