Beyond the Cap and Trade Debate: The Advantages of Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

The idea of measuring, monitoring and ultimately conserving energy used to be the exclusive province of environmentalists and power companies.

  • Managing your energy usage more effectively can free up power for future data center growth.
  • Reducing energy usage now will also position your company to better accommodate future government restrictions and conservation efforts.
