Solar Powered Energy Efficient Storage

Solar Powered Energy Efficient Storage | green infographics | Scoop.it

Extra Space Storage is on a mission to produce solar powered clean energy and reduce the carbon footprint of our storage facilities. We aim to install 20,000 solar panels this year, and increase the pace of panel installation every year. Energy efficient clean power is good for our customers and our neighborhoods, our planet, and our investors.

By the end of 2011 this program will save 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 100 acres of fir trees.

Having said that, the Net’s environmental impact is not bupkis. Recently, campaigners have been sounding the alarm about the cloud-related expansion of data centers around the country, with well-known companies accused of using less-than-clean energy sources to power them.

This infographic by Wordstream points to both sides of the issue...
