Environmentally Conscious Hosting
At Skybolt Hosting, we pride ourselves in being environmentally responsible and work hard to keep our operations efficient and limit our impact on the environment. For every new hosting account at Skybolt Hosting we plant one tree!
The trees we're planting have a clear and cumulative effect on the environment and on greenhouse gas levels. The average tree inhales 26 lbs of carbon dioxide per year and exhales enough oxygen for a family of four for a year. Trees also reflect solar radiation back into space and increase cloud cover, both of which help counteract global warming. We have partnered with MokuGift and the UN Environment Program for this project. Planting trees through these groups has the added benefit of teaching sustainable agriculture in impoverished parts of the world.
The majority of the impact Skybolt Hosting has on the environment is through the electricity our servers and related equipment use. Luckily for us, with today's energy prices, being green and being cost effective can go hand in hand. We are constantly working to reduce our costs and our impact by leveraging new technologies to lower power consumption using natural DC cooling technology.
