Fat Cow 100% eco friendly webhosting

Our offices and our data centers are all 100% powered by wind energy. You can be proud that the machines hosting your website and email are fully eco-friendly!

How It Works

Since generating wind energy on site isn’t feasible, we’re offsetting all of our electricity use with wind-generated Renewable Energy Certificates, which prevents the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year.

That figure is staggering when you consider the estimated yearly benefit to the environment is equivalent to any one of the following:

  • planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees
  • not driving 6.1 million miles
  • removing 510 cars from the road

Why Go Green?

Quite frankly, our employees and our customers were the driving factors behind our decision to go green. This initiative isn’t a marketing ploy; our staff members encourage responsible environmental practices inside the office and practice them outside the office. And, we know that many of our customers feel just as strongly.

Reduce your carbon footprint by hosting your site on servers powered 100% by wind energy.

All the Cowbells and Whistles

Webhosting – 130% Powered By Wind Energy

When choosing a web hosting company, how would you feel if you new the company you were working with had a concern for the environment.  A company that felt strongly enough about reducing emissions and greenhouse gasses to actually replace 130% of it’s energy usage by purchasing the equivalent REC’s (Renewal Energy Certificates) for the electricity used to power and cool their servers.

One such company is HostgatorHosgator is a large website hosting company that requires a tremendous amount of energy to run, yet they have made a commitment to purchase 130% REC’s.   That means they are putting 130% renewable energy back into the power grid.  They are not only replacing all of the power they use with eco friendly power, they are replacing 30% more!  Amazing!   All of Hostgator’s REC’s are purchased from wind farms in the state of Texas.   If you are concerned about the environment, Hostgator should be your web host of choice.

Hostgator purchases their REC’s from 3Degrees.  3Degrees is a large renewable energy broker.  Hostgator has chosen to purchase it’s REC’s entirely from Wind Farms located in the state of Texas.

With the purchase of these REC’s, Hostgator is able to prevent over 3,500 TONS of Carbon Dioxide from entering the atmosphere every year.  To give you an idea of how much Carbon Dioxide this equals, this is equal to burning 18 Railroad Cars worth of coal, or the amount of CO2 produced by 650 automobiles for a whole year.

The production of electricity is the number 1 leading causes of gas emissions that contribute to global climate change.

By purchasing 130% of the electricity used, Hostgator is reversing, not  simply neutralizing, its environmental impact. By utilizing these methods Hostgator actually lowers pollution, reduces climate change, and encourages the development of our national renewable energy resources.
