The information technology (IT) sector has a huge climate impact. Currently, between 3 to 4 percent of all electricity (and the associated carbon emissions) used in the world goes to running data centers.
Here at MomCart, we don't add to the problem, we reduce it!
The energy to power and cool all of the servers that MomCart hosts websites on is offset by the purchase of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from 3degrees. (REC's are tradeable credits representing all the environmental benefits of 1 megawatt hour of renewable energy.) Using REC's is basically paying a windfarm to generate renewable energy on behalf of the servers. The windfarm then generates 1 megawatt of wind power and puts it into the power grid. When the servers draw power from the power grid, they use the wind power that the windfarm created.
