Green Web Hosting


We are a “green” web site!
We continually purchase enough Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to be carbon neutral, which means we offset all of energy used by the servers and other hardware used to host our website, and the energy used by our office equipment with clean, renewable wind energy. In fact, we actually offset 125% of our energy used.


In addition to offsetting the energy used by the servers, the company we have partnered with to manage our servers is also a green company. For every new web hosting account, they plant a tree!

What are Renewable Energy Certificates?
A Renewable Energy Certificate represents one megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable electricity generated and delivered somewhere on the power grid. Each MWh of clean renewable electricity results in one less MWh of dirty power. Therefore a Renewable Energy Certificate also represents the environmental benefits of replacing dirty power with clean power. Purchase of RECs supports existing wind farms and the creation of new ones. Anyone can buy them, and we encourage you to join us!

Let us know if you want any information. Like buying certificates or calculating your carbon foot print.
