Some information about the 1&1 Green Program:
1&1 has partnered with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to offset 100% of the energy usage of our data center in Lenexa, Kansas by purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). The majority of the RECs will be sourced from the Bowersock Mills and Power Company’s hydroelectric facility in Lawrence, Kansas. This hydroelectric facility is certified low impact by the Low Impact Hydro Institute (LIHI).
1&1’s renewable energy purchase for the facility is enough clean energy to power at least 300 U.S. homes for one year!
1&1 and BEF work in tandem with Green-e, the nation’s leading voluntary certification program for renewable energy, to power our data center with clean, renewable energy. Green-e certifies renewable energy that meets environmental and consumer protection standards that it developed in conjunction with leading environmental, energy and policy organizations.
1&1 has also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a Green Power Partner for its annual purchase of 17.5 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power (electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, like wind, solar, hydroelectric and geothermal).
The Woods Cross Police Department web site is hosted on the 1&1 data center in Lenexa, Kansas with simultaneous backup on 1and1’s New Jersey server farm
- The Woods Cross Police Department website is simultaneously hosted on two separate server clusters in two geographically separate data centers. If the first location is unexpectedly interrupted, our site will automatically continue running in the second location- without any data loss.
- Locations are in sync and immediately available with our live data.
- There are no long downtimes due to maintenance work on our servers. Necessary maintenance measures are carried out without interruption – our information stays online during system maintenance.
