Greenest Host Announces Launch of Zero-Emission Web Hosting ServicesClean Technology Startup Offers 100% Green Solar-Powered Web Hosting for Business and Consumers (August 01, 2007)
The company has combined cutting edge green power technology with custom, easy-to-use account management software, point-and-click website development tools, and world-class ecommerce software. For the first time, consumers and small businesses have the freedom to sign up for a green technology web hosting account, build a web presence, and know that with every web visitor's click they are reducing carbon emissions. And for every new account created through the end of 2007, Greenest Host will donate $5 to the Environmental Defense Fund - up to $500,000.
"The idea for such a venture developed out of our firsthand experience with data center operations. Ask any data center operations person how power and cooling-hungry most web servers are," said Mike Corrales, President and CEO of Greenest Host. "When we ran the numbers, we were astounded by how much pollution can be reduced when switching to green technology hosting. Greenest Host literally produces zero carbon emissions."
"It is important to note that this is NOT a green solution because we are buying Renewable Energy Credits or carbon offsets," said Corrales, "it is energy from the sun that powers our web servers and data center cooling day and night. We are not paying a penance for our emissions sins, we are just not committing the sins in the first place."
Greenest Host is also sponsoring the Green Power Inside "Million Green Powered Website" campaign, where the goal is to convert one million websites to clean power, resulting in pollution reductions equivalent to:
- 2,000 passenger cars not driven for one year
- 1,070,000 gallons of gasoline not burned
- 21,900 barrels of oil not burned
- 1,200 households not using electricity for a year
- 240,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years
- 7,900 acres of pine or fir forests storing carbon for one year
- 77 acres of forest preserved from deforestation
- 48 railcars of coal not burned
- 3,200 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled
