Data center and cloud hosting solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc.
(TurnKey) has received an award with a focus on protecting the environment. Established in 1999, TurnKey is based in Latham, New York, United States. The company offers a broad range of services including cloud and dedicated servers (featuring the cPanel web hosting control panel) alongside reseller hosting, backup and ecommerce options through its fiber optic network. It also offers Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions. TurnKey has been given a “green hydroelectric power” contract by New York State’s ‘ReCharge NY’ program.
ReCharge NY is a New York State initiative that offers “qualifying businesses” access to “clean renewable hydroelectric power”. Companies eligible for the award commit to the state in terms of investing in regional employment, through expanding operations, and in other areas. 23 companies across the state are given access to green power and in TurnKey’s case they received 220 kilowatts of hydroelectricity that was generated by Niagara Falls.
TurnKey’s SSAE-18 SOC 1, SOC 2-certified and HIPAA-compliant data center is certified by ENERGY STAR and uses 100% renewable energy from solar and hydroelectric sources. The company is no stranger to ReCharge NY’s award, originally receiving access to hydroelectric power from the program when it opened its 100% green energy powered data center in 2013.
“TurnKey Internet is pleased to continue its partnership with the ReCharge NY program,” explained the company’s CEO and President, Adam Wills. “The additional hydroelectric power will allow us to keep expanding our presence in New York’s Tech Valley, as well as provide more employment opportunities in the capital region. He continued, “This is yet another green milestone that reinforces our commitment to clean, sustainable practices while continuing to provide uncompromised, enterprise-class data center and cloud solutions to clients across the world.”Do you know of any other companies being awarded green energy?
