More Wind and Solar-Powered Web Hosting
Yesterday we wrote about solar-powered web hosting. The company we mentioned is not alone in that field; there are many more hosting providers that are powered by wind or solar (either directly from solar panels and wind turbines, or by buying clean energy credits from the utility company). If you have a website, or are thinking of creating one, please consider green hosting. Have a look at the companies I found...
- WebCtel – Solar
- SolarWebWorks – Solar
- EcoSky – Solar & wind
- The Green Web Host – Mixed sources, mostly wind I think
- Locomotive Media – Wind
- Elfon – Wind
- SustainableMarketing – Wind
- Aiso - Solar
- Taproot Hosting
This list is by no mean exhaustive, and if you are interested in eco-friendly web hosting, by all means, shop around. It must also be made clear that TreeHugger is not endorsing these companies, for we have not tried their services (yet?). Doing a background check and googling around for opinions from customers is always a good idea before opening your wallet.
