Green Web Hosting

from Global Web Design

100% Powered by Certified Green Renewable Energy Sources

Global Web Design Namibia has taken the initiative of going green by purchasing hosting that uses 100% green renewable energy to power their data centre, web servers, office computers, laptops and office space. These energy sources supply the entire equivalent energy consumption into the power-grid with certified 100% renewable green energy sources, such as wind and solar-powered energy.

How is it Done?

They certainly do not have a wind turbine on the roof of their data centre! Sure, it would be a neat thing to have, but that is not the case. After an energy audit by an outside provider to calculate their total electrical energy consumption from traditional sources, they purchased "green energy tags" or certificates from a certified green energy supplier. That supplier calculates the total energy consumption of their operation and uses their suppliers of green energy to pump in 100% equivalent energy back into the power grid. This effectively cuts down on the carbon dioxide-producing (CO2) energy that they normally would have required from non-green energy sources.

They have actually calculated that, since they started to purchase green energy in 2006, they have removed roughly 40,000 kg of CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases affecting our environment. That's the equivalent of removing 20 cars from the highway each year!

By purchasing the green energy certificates, they have completely offset the amount of greenhouse gas production by their current electricity providers with certified wind and solar-power providers.

Why Do We Do It?

Simply put, we did it because of our commitment to corporate responsibility and to the environment. Ultimately, we wanted to use the green leader in web hosting. The servers and equipment they use run 24 hours per day and consume a great deal of electricity. Why should we burden the world just because we require that electricity to host our websites? If we need the electricity for our operation, let's buy it from clean-energy sources and contribute positively to our environment.
