As a Pacific Northwest Web hosting provider, we at Canvas Host want to limit our impact on the environment. The major resource we use in the operation of our business is electricity. In addition to our servers and network equipment, power is used by the cooling, security, and fire suppression systems at our data facility.

Canvas Host utilizes energy-efficient servers and employs conservation technology where possible. Our newest line of greener dedicated servers use ultra-efficient CPUs - created through a lead- and halogen-free manufacturing process - generate little heat, and draw considerably less power than do our enterprise servers. Still, for every Watt of power used by our hosting infrastructure, another Watt is used to cool the heat generated by our systems.

From an energy usage standpoint, Web hosting is a costly business, and as such, its impact higher on the environment as compared to other industries. For this reason and many others, Canvas Host partnered with Bonneville Environmental Foundation to purchase locally-generated renewable energy.

Renewable Energy from Local Energy Projects

See our tour of the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm which generates renewable energy in the Pacific Northwest.

Through Bonneville Environmental Foundation, we purchase 100% renewable energy from wind and geothermal projects in our local power grid. Unlike traditional carbon offset or national renewable energy credit programs, this method directly benefits our data facility and the Pacific Northwest environment and economy. It's as close as we can get to plugging a clean energy source directly into our data facility!

Not only is it one way for us to give back to Northwest businesses who have supported us, it is also one small step to helping the environment that has given us a home.

Learn More About Renewable Energy

We encourage you to learn more about how you can participate in renewable programs for home and business. Contact your local power utility or, or reach out to Bonneville Environmental Foundation for more information.
