Now Is the Time to Embrace Renewable Energy in Your Data Center

Your data center uses a massive amount of electricity. Like most large enterprises, the energy you burn in a year is enough to power a small city for an extended period of time.

While your business’s heavy energy consumption is largely unavoidable, since your sizeable data center is an integral part of your organization’s operations, you can, on the other hand, avoid growing your carbon footprint by choosing to invest in green energy sources.

It’s possible to help clean up the environment by switching to renewable energy like solar, wind or water power. Now, moving to renewable energy is more affordable and easier than ever before: In many states, you simply contact your utility provider and request the change. So, no more excuses as well as no more reasons to forego renewable energy.

Don’t let the size of your enterprise keep you from switching your energy supply either. Google, for instance, a massive corporation with multiple data centers (at least 12 in the U.S. alone), currently uses renewable energy to power 35 percent of its operations. If Google can rely this heavily on renewable energy, your business can too.

Beyond “going green” by switching your energy source, enhance your efforts by adopting a culture of responsible energy usage. This entails measuring and controlling your data center’s power consumption in real time. With the right data center power monitoring software, you can keep a close watch on your business’s usage and look for ways to reduce your impact on the environment. It can help you lower your energy costs, and comply with local and federal energy consumption mandates.

Here at Server Technology, we’re ready to help you better manage your data center’s energy usage. Our advanced power monitoring software can provide unparalleled visibility into your daily power consumption, putting you in the driver’s seat when it comes to making important changes based on hard data.
