plan we offer is covered under our carbon neutral green program, and at a price far less
than you may have expected to pay.
Not just a marketing ploy

Becoming 100% renewable energy powered was a big step for our company.
Although one of our data centers was already powered partially by wind, we
sponsor many green/ progressive groups and a couple of our offices were already powered by
solar and wind energy energy - we wanted to do more, to become fully carbon
Becoming 100% renewable energy powered
Due to our infrastructure and geographical distribution, we
couldn't install solar panels or construct a few wind turbines outside. It's
also incredibly expensive. So, what to do?
We weren't going to give up in our goals of becoming a very "green"
web hosting service and we also didn't want to pass on extra costs associated
with going greener to our clients!
extensive audit, we calculated the electricity usage of our servers and staff
offices, then purchased the necessary wind and solar green energy tags. There are a number of
nationally accredited alternative energy providers around that provide
certificates. They are the experts at generating green power; our specialty is
web hosting. By not having to concern ourselves with the actual generation of
renewable energy, it allows us focus more on our hosting technology and client
We only purchase tags that have been certified by Green-e;
the nation's leading independent certification and verification
program for renewable energy
By purchasing the green certificates (90% wind/10% solar), the electricity
generated by these sources isn't routed directly into our various premises. We
still pay all our bills as per usual to our regular providers - but for every X
kilowatts worth of green energy tags purchased, X kilowatts less
electricity is fed into the grid via non-renewable means. The solar/wind
generated electricity we purchased simply goes into the grid, in our case,
Portland's. Still, the result is the same - carbon neutral web hosting.
Thinking earth friendly web hosting?
Take the first step in becoming a environmentally conscious, carbon neutral online business
and host with ThinkHost! As mentioned, every green web
we offer is powered by a wind/solar mix of electricity.
Once you are hosted with
us, flaunt this fact - we can supply you with text links, banners or buttons. Consumers are awakening to the fact that we can't keep
taking from planet Earth and give nothing back except for pollution. Your
clients will applaud you for your efforts!
Green power beyond your web site
After your web site and associated online services are environmentally friendly,
consider other aspects of your business - your offices and factories. When
you purchase green energy certificates, you can usually choose which type of
renewable energy you'd like - wind, biomass, landfill gas, solar. The
cost is the value over and above normal electricity rates. While it's a
little more expensive, we really believe it's worth the cost, not only in terms
of benefit to the environment, but your clients will see you as a leader in
resolving some of the most serious issues that face humanity today.
The more of us who choose this path, the quicker that price per
kilowatt of renewable energy should also drop, making green certificates
cheaper. If enough of us demand green power, it will become the standard rather
than the exception. We can all choose to be a part of the problem or part of the
carbon neutral solution.
By hosting with ThinkHost, you are taking that extra step in being a part of
the solution and we look forward to welcoming your company as a client! Select
