Green WebHost

Green WebHost is an UK company that started providing environmental guided hosting in 2003. They were, according to them, the first ISP in UK that took this issue seriously.

Their datacenter is located in California, east of Los Angeles, and uses 120 solar panels which generate all the electricity they need to power the servers and their offices, becoming the first and only solar-powered hosting company in the UK.

We "assist" in the offset all of our estimated 25 Tonnes per year of CO2 (by "sequestration" or "Carbon Fix") by working with TreeSponsibility, a community based Climate Action Group, we also plant a tree for every new Broadband and Web Hosting customer.

One of their plans for the near future is to build the first "Solar Powered Data-centre" in Europe. This data-centre is expected to be built in Portugal. They are currently looking for Investors or Internet companies wishing to help.

During 2007/08 we will be liaising with investors and technical experts in the field of Internet backbone connectivity and data-centre design to complete Europe's first "Solar Powered Data-centre" build, we will be meeting with key people interested in making this vision a reality, this is looking more likely to be in Portugal.
