Codero goes green with electricity usage

Nov. 30, 2009
The dedicated and managed hosting provider purchased 12,600 MWh of Green-e certified renewable green power to meet 100% of annual electricity needs from Ecoelectrons Renewable Energy, a company specializing in supplying green power to corporations through renewable energy credits.

November 30, 2009 -- Dedicated and managed hosting provider Codero announced that it is "going green" with its electricity usage. The company has purchased green power through renewable energy credits for its two data centers located in Phoenix, AZ and San Diego, CA, as well as its headquarters location in Overland Park, KS.

Codero purchased 12,600 MWh of Green-e certified renewable green power to meet 100% of annual electricity needs for its entire operations from Ecoelectrons Renewable Energy, a company specializing in supplying green power to corporations through renewable energy credits.

"Greening our dedicated server and managed hosting operations is not only good for the environment, it's good for our customers, too," says Phil Spencer, CEO of Codero. "Our 'Green with Codero Initiative' signifies our commitment to making smarter energy choices and allows our customers to move their businesses in a more environmentally-sustainable direction."

As a member of Green-e Energy's Marketplace program, Codero can display the Green-e logo on its company website and other communication materials to help customers identify the services delivered with certified renewable energy. The credits purchased by Codero were certified by Green-e Energy, a renewable energy certification program based in the U.S.

Green-e provides independent, third-party certification to ensure renewable energy meets strict environmental and consumer protection standards. Codero will also join the Green Power Partnership - a voluntary program that offers organizations purchasing green power expert advice and technical support. It is managed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"We are very pleased that Codero has purchased green power," concludes Rahul Chitrapu, chief executive of Ecoelectrons Renewable Energy. "Codero's commitment not only inspires new online wind-energy generation but is testament to the environmental ethos that runs within the company. People today want companies to act in a socially responsible manner, and the purchase of green power is a simple and effective step."
