Green House Data, a US provider of cloud hosting, colocation and managed data centre services, said it has edged into the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Top 30 Tech and Telecom list of the largest green power users.

Company supports the development of clean energy with 8 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy credits, adds another 12,225,000 kilowatt-hours for new facilities.
In addition to the 8 million kWh of RECs making up the current ranking, Green House Data recently committed to an additional 12,225,000 kWh to address increased data center capacity after the acquisition of Seattle-based FiberCloud on April 1, 2015. As a matter of good faith, this includes RECs dating back to January 1, 2015. The company expects to again grow this number as the company’s facility in Orangeburg, NY comes online.
