Web hosting TurnKey has announced the opening of an environment friendly data center in New York. TurnKey’s website evidences their desire to go ‘green’ in everything, including the color of their web site. An onsite solar system, access to hydro electric power and special cold containment pods designed for maximum efficiency are some of the key features of the new data center. Approval for hydropower from the Niagara Falls hydro project through Governor Cuomo’s ‘’Recharge New York ‘’ is in the pipeline as well. The biggest plus however, is the addition of the new advanced rooftop solar system that can generate up to 75% of the company’s total energy needs.
“Data centers use massive quantities of energy,” said TurnKey Internet CEO Adam Wills. “Without companies like us taking the initiative, studies have shown that by 2020 our industry will be as big of a polluter as the airline industry. By producing our own clean power on-site, we’ve been able to double the size of our local workforce over the past 18 months. Innovative green technologies at our new facility in New York’s Tech Valley have not only helped us become more environmentally responsible, but also placed us on the cutting edge as a cloud services provider offering low-cost, energy-efficient green IT services and solutions”
With a consumption rate of more than 1.5 MW of electricity by the 12,000 square foot data center, switching to solar energy was always on the cards for an environment conscious TurnKey. Cold containment pods, which provide a secure, clean-room environment for all servers and equipment and use 33 percent less energy, have been installed at the cost of millions of dollars. The cold containment pods ‘’spot cool’’ specific heat zones throughout the data center.
As an incentive to customers, TurnKey is offering $100 cash back with Visa Gift Card Rebate and 75% off on all company services to celebrate the occasion of earth day.
