SKGOLD Hosting’s Datacenter Goes Green

It's not at all unusual for SKGOLD® Hosting to do nice things for our customers and our community – after all we like to think we’re all on the same team. And so it is again...

Our datacenter has taken an important step to benefit the environment and as a result, the entire global community, and we’re proud to tell folks about it.

Computer datacenters consume a tremendous amount of energy. It’s true; while they appear to sit quietly, humming along day and night, they’re actually burning power. You see, all that humming generates heat, and the equipment can’t tolerate too much heat. So datacenters need powerful cooling systems to keep them working properly, and cooling takes power.

The datacenter at SKGOLD® Hosting uses electricity to run their coolers, just like any other. In a departure from the norm, however, it has adopted environmentally friendly practices to help reduce the impact caused by power usage. In a nutshell, it uses wind-generated electric power to run its coolers.

Let the Wind Blow!!!

Wind is a clean, renewable resource, ideal for reducing carbon emissions while generating energy. On the other hand, electricity generated by burning fossil fuels adds greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, something believed to contribute to global warming.

A commitment to use only “wind-tricity” serves the environment in two ways. First, it slows the depletion of the earth’s natural resources (coal and oil). And second, it avoids dumping additional junk in the air.

We think of it this way: when the datacenter at SKGOLD® Hosting uses wind energy, we give back to our community in the form of cleaner air and a healthier environment. And of course, using wind energy helps us save money, which helps our customers save money.
