Environmentally Friendly Web Hosting

Blueleaf Studio Environmentally Friendly Web Hosting is 100% powered by renewable energy sources. I want to promote the development and use of wind and solar energy resources, and by using a data center that purchases green energy certificates to offset all the power used, websites hosted with Blueleaf are run on clean, sustainable energy.

Electricity use by data centres is one of the fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions globally, as more people come online. Internet data traffic is expected to triple between 2012 and 2017.  By making better energy choices, cloud companies have the opportunity to be a catalyst in driving utilities and governments toward the development of cleaner electricity generation that will ensure a truly green cloud for their long-term sustainability – and a greener grid for us all. Even if you don’t choose Blueleaf as your web host I ask that you please take the environmental factors of your activity into account

By putting equivalent clean energy back into the grid, I effectively reduce my carbon footprint and support renewable energy initiatives. Read more about the renewable energy I use below.

Green Facts about Blueleaf’s Environmentally Friendly Web Hosting

Some studies estimate that the Internet will be producing 20 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases in a decade. It’s important that we make sure we use environmentally friendly web hosting.   Greenpeace’s excellent article “Clicking Green” highlights some of these trends.

Why do I use an American Provider? To me it makes no difference what country you’re from, there is only one earth and we all share the responsibility of its well being. Put simply, using American and Canadian servers allows me to give you a cheaper, greener service while maintaining reliability, speed and integrity for your server; something any UK provider was not able to offer at this time.

As well as offering green web hosting, I also try to minimise the impact my business has on the environment in other ways too. You can read more about my eco credentials and green philosophy here.

The source of our 100% renewable Green tag energy that ultimately supplies our server comes from a number of sources, including:

  • Condon Wind Facility (Gilliam County, OR)
  • Foote Creek Wind Facility (Carbon County, WY)
  • Klondike Wind Facility (Sherman County, OR)
  • Northwest Small Wind Co-op (WA, MT)
  • Northwest Solar Co-op (OR, WA)
  • Portland Brewery Blocks (Portland, OR)
  • Solar Ashland (Ashland, OR)
  • Stateline Wind Facility (Walla Walla County, WA; Umatilla
  • County, OR)
  • Summerview Wind Facility (Pincher Creek, Alberta, Canada)
  • Tillamook Animal Waste to Energy (Tillamook, OR)
  • Washington State School for the Blind (Vancouver, WA)
  • White Bluffs/Hanford (White Bluffs, WA)

The above facilities replace our energy consumption by supplying the power grid with our equivalent energy requirements of 100% green energy from wind and solar energy providers.
