Maine Hosting - Green Web Hosting
Maine.Info/Hosting - 100% Wind Powered
Maine.Info and our client web hosting operations at Maine.Info/Hosting are carbon neutral. We purchase renewable wind energy certificates (RECs) from Community Energy, Inc. to match more than 100% of the electricity needs of our web hosting operations, including all hosting & backup servers and all office space and equipment. These Green-e certified RECs are sourced from wind farms throughout the United States -- and the wind power they represent is delivered to the regional and national power grids on behalf of Maine.Info/Hosting and our clients whose websites we host.
By purchasing 3,600 kWh of wind power -- 114% of our annual energy usage -- Maine.Info/Hosting will offset the release of approximately 2.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) from entering the atmosphere, a harmful greenhouse gas that is linked to global warming. See U.S. EPA's Green Power Equivalency Calculator.
Through our purchase of renewable energy to meet more than 100% of our electricity requirements, Maine.Info has become an EPA Green Power Partner: "The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would like to thank Maine.Info for making a significant green power purchase. Your commitment, and those of other Green Power Partners, helps to reduce the risks associated with climate change by supporting technologies that are more sustainable for businesses and communities."
