Did you know that the average web server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV?
At PianoCovers.com, we use 18 servers to run our family of web sites. That means a lot of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions. So we asked ourselves, what can we do to be part of the climate change solution? We took steps to minimize our environmental impact at the office, but still we weren't satisfied. We then switched to 36% more efficient servers, but still we weren't satisfied!
We are proud to announce that... All of our servers are now 130% wind powered!
That's right! 130%! We're not just neutralizing our environmental impact, we're reversing it! Along with our hosting company, PianoCovers.com has purchased certified Renewable Energy Credits representing 130% of the electricity used to both power and cool every last one of our servers!
Just how big a dent in climate change does that make?
When coupled with the help of our hosting company pledging to move all of their customers it's the equivalent of:
- Removing 444 cars from the road for a year, or
- Powering 321 homes with clean energy for a year, or
- Saving 5,654 barrels of oil, or
- Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year
At PianoCovers.com we are one small company doing our part. To learn more about how businesses and individuals can fund clean energy and carbon reduction projects through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates and Verified Emission Reductions visit our partner
