Posted at Apr 22, 2019 @ 9:00am Press Release

LATHAM, NEW YORK (April 22, 2019) – To celebrate Earth Day, leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that it has been certified as an official member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership program. TurnKey is being recognized for its efforts to help reduce the negative health impacts of air emissions through the use of green power at its New York data center.

TurnKey Internet’s data center utilizes state-of-the-art technology and 100% renewable energy to provide the greenest cloud-based IT services for clients all over the world. TurnKey offers revolutionary green IT solutions, such as employing low-voltage servers stored in ultra-efficient cold containment pods in each section of their data center. These pods deliver precision spot-cooling to temperature-regulated server racks, which use thirty-three percent less energy than traditional data centers.

“We are excited to be able to announce on Earth Day that TurnKey is officially joining the EPA’s Green Power Partnership,” said Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet. He continued to say, “The future of both the Cloud Industry and the IT world in general revolve around energy—generating it from renewable resources and consuming it efficiently and responsibly. TurnKey’s green data center was built with sustainability in mind, and our commitment only evolves as the world-wide demand for energy consumption continues to multiply.”

TurnKey’s data center is equipped with on-site rooftop solar panels and uses hydroelectric power from Niagara Falls. TurnKey first acquired the hydropower through New York State’s Recharge NY program in 2013. This year, ReCharge NY awarded TurnKey with an additional 220 kilowatts of hydropower, due to TurnKey’s ongoing green initiatives and commitments. In September 2018, TurnKey’s facility was re-certified for the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program. TurnKey first earned this certification in 2013, when it became only the second ENERGY STAR certified data center in New York State. Also in 2013, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation awarded TurnKey Internet the Environmental Excellence Award in recognition of their innovative data center design and outstanding commitment to environmental sustainability, social responsibility and economic viability.

While maintaining their high-level energy-efficient data center, TurnKey Internet looks forward to Earth Day to emphasize that all it takes to merge technology and the environment is a little bit of corporate responsibility.
