TurnKey Internet, Inc. recently completed a massive multi-million dollar investment in New York’s Tech Valley region which repurposed a previously abandoned U.S. Post Office building and converted it to a state-of-the-art datacenter utilizing advanced green-specific technologies to make it 33% more energy efficient than similar datacenters across the Globe. TurnKey also installed a massive solar array system on the property to produce its own clean renewable energy. Over the last 18 months, TurnKey has doubled its work force in New York.
