Did you know the IT sector has a huge impact on the environment?
Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV?
Did you know that SabotSites.com is 130% wind powered hosting!
Currently about 4% of all electricity (and the associated carbon emissions) used in the world goes into running data centers. But SabotSites.com is 130% wind powered hosting! That’s right! 130%! We’re not just neutralizing our environmental impact, we’re helping to reverse it!
Our server company has purchased certified Renewable Energy Credits representing 130% of the electricity used to both power and cool every last one of its servers!
Just how big a dent in climate change does that make?
It’s the equivalent of:
- Removing 444 cars from the road for a year, or
- Powering 321 homes with clean energy for a year, or
- Saving 5,654 barrels of oil, or
- Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year
