Codero goes green with its electricity usage

November 25, 2009 by  

CoderoWeb Hosting ToolboxOVERLAND PARK, KS – Codero, a dedicated and managed hosting provider, 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, the leading renewable energy certification program 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 prestigious 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,” said Rahul Chitrapu, Chief Executive of Ecoelectrons. “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.”

Codero joins a growing list of companies and organizations that are taking real action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from their energy use. Electricity generated from renewable sources results in less environmental waste and pollution, and displaces other non-renewable sources from the electric grid. Currently, renewable energy accounts for only about two percent of total electricity generation nationwide. Codero’s purchase of electricity generated from nearly emissions-free renewable sources avoids carbon dioxide and other pollutants and serves to build the market for renewable energy nationwide, while increasing incentives for building new facilities.
