DreamHost moves boldly towards being Environmentally Friendly


Dreamhost has announced it is going green and has so proclaimed this on their blog and they have managed to cough up some controversy over the move, with some skeptics saying this is not really going to make an ecological difference and that they have been "scammed into it" (ridiculous sentiment if you ask me), many complain about a possible increase in their plan rates, while others applaud and note the effort as a positive one. (like me)

How do you feel about this host (or any other host) going green?

What about having your web site powered by solar....AISO.Net (http://www.aiso.net) is 100% solar powered, both their servers and data center are powered by onsite solar panels. And they also have a partnership with Co-Op America, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Green Building Council. Plus, they are doing more then just making sure their electricity is green. Their data center and office is green too by using environmentally friendly air conditioners, solar tubes to bring in natural light, a propane powered generator instead of diesel, VMWare virtualization to reduce their server electricity usage, 6 watt energy saving desktop computers for their employees, and soon to be LEED certified as a green data center, the only public one in North America.
