GreenGeeks Donates to Haiti Earthquake Relief & Rebuild Effort

I was on the road when I heard that Haiti had been hit by an earthquake of a magnitude in the range of the low 7’s, if I recall correctly I think I remembered 7.1 magnitude and that the quake epicenter was somewhere around 300 miles off shore. I was traveling that week and while juggling work, travel and this news I did not pay much attention to it at first. After all I had been in Los Angeles during the Northridge quake in 1994 and while that quake was “only” a 6.7 the epicenter was far closer to where I was at the time (about 8 miles as the crow flies) and so naturally with the epicenter of the Haiti quake having been several hundred miles away I assume that Haiti should be in far better condition than I later learned it was.
The day after the quake hit I had reached a destination where I would be for the next several days and i could devote time to my work and to following this story without being on the road. It seemed that the earthquake caused damage which to me watching the new coverage seemed to continue to grow. Every passing minute brought new information as to the devastation and later the desperation of the Haitian people. It did not seem like there was a single building still standing in Haiti. I watched as an interview took place with the President of Haiti, whose palace had collapsed. The president was at the airport along with hundreds of other people, he was disheveled and when asked where he would sleep that night he replied that he did not know. This was the President of the country they were interviewing and he had no food no change of clothes and was not sure where he would sleep that night. I thought to myself if this is how the President is how are the rest of the people of this country.
Over the days after the quake as more and more news flooded in about Haiti we learned how destructive this quake had been to the Port Au Prince capital and to the rest of the country. We learned about the trapped survivors slowing dying in their entombed dwellings. We learned about the dead and the lack of basic necessities as well as the lack of medical supplies. There was no central authority and seemingly no authority of any kind.
It was obvious that these people and this country would need massive and sustained assistance. We at GreenGeeks are proud to be a part of the Hosting Industry and probably our proudest week was this past week when rivals and competitors from all over our industry joined together to create HostingForHaiti.com a site that promotes contribution to the aid and redevelopment of Haiti. GreenGeeks is proud to be a part of HostingForHaiti.com and we have pledged to donate a dollar for every new web hosting account signed up in 2010.
We are proud of where we are as a company and we take pride in being able to reach within ourselves and offer aid to those in need.

U.S. EPA Recognizes GreenGeek’s Green Efforts

Earlier last week, GreenGeeks announced that it had been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for its green efforts!

Here’s the press release that was sent out:

Santa Monica, CA. September 23, 2009 –  GreenGeeks, LLC today announced its purchase of green power and its partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership.  GreenGeeks, LLC is purchasing more than 48,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet  300 percent of the organizations purchased electricity use.  GreenGeeks, LLC is buying renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Bonneville Environmental Foundation, a leading national supplier of green power products.

“This is a huge honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” said Trey Gardner, GreenGeeks CEO  “We’ve always been diligent and we’ve worked hard to make GreenGeeks the most eco friendly company we could be. When the EPA contacted us we were pleased to find out that companies like ours could get the support of the EPA through their Green Power Partner Program. We look forward to working with the EPA and their Program to further the cause for more companies to go green.”

Green power is electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, biomass and low-impact hydro.  These resources generate electricity with a net zero increase in carbon dioxide emissions, while offering a superior environmental profile compared to traditional power generation sources.  Green power purchases also support the development of new renewable energy generation sources nationwide.

“EPA is pleased to welcome GreenGeeks to the Green Power Partnership. We applaud their commitment to using green power to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Kathleen Hogan, Director of the Climate Protection Partnerships Division at EPA.

According to the U.S. EPA, Green Geek’s green power purchase of more than 48,000 (kWh) is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of more than 6 passenger vehicles per year, or is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power more than 5 average American homes annually.
