Green House Data expands commitment to WyRECs renewable energy credit program.
Cheyenne-based cloud hosting, colocation, and hybrid IT provider Green House Data and Powder River Energy Corporation (PRECorp) today announced a commitment of 25,000 megawatt hours of renewable energy credits, known as WyRECs, to be used across Green House Data’s nine nationwide data centers. Green House Data has participated in renewable energy credit (REC) programs since the company’s founding in 2007 and has taken advantage of WyRECs since 2014, when this initiative was launched.
Over the course of 2018, Green House Data will use renewable energy credits from the WyRECs program to offset energy consumption across each of its data centers, including at the company’s Cheyenne headquarters. Currently, Green House Data ranks #25 on the EPA’s Top 30 Tech and Telecom Green Power Partnership list.
“Green House Data is a fantastic partner for this program given their commitment to 100 percent sustainable power, their long-term commitment to support and invest in Wyoming and to be a leading green data center provider nationwide,” said Laura Ladd, PRECorp consultant and program designer. “We are thrilled to see this partnership grow so significantly.”
“We are pleased to be able to work with a Wyoming-based partner who offers renewable wind energy credits that are compliant with EPA’s Green Power program, particularly with our data center in Cheyenne,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “As we continue to add capacity, this relationship will only grow.”
