Burlington, Mass.-based FatCow, a provider of Web hosting, domain registration and related marketing services, is now powering its offices and data centers with wind energy.
FatCow is buying 4.4 million kWh per year of wind-generated renewable energy certificates (RECs). This volume is comparable to the entire output of one 1.5 MW wind turbine over the course of one year.
By reducing its carbon footprint, FatCow is responding to feedback from its staff, as well as letting customers host green sites of their own.
‘Our staff members encourage responsible environmental behavior inside the office and practice it outside the office,’ says Paul Bukhovko, FatCow's marketing manager. ‘And we know that many of our customers feel just as strongly.’
The RECs are being supplied by wind energy marketer and developer Community Energy Inc.
