Infomart Data Centers Purchases 100% Renewable Energy at Its Silicon Valley Facility

San Jose, CA – April 20, 2017 – Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, announces today that its Infomart Silicon Valley facility is purchasing 100% renewable power for all electricity consumption as of January 2017.

Many leading companies have made public commitments to procure 100% renewable energy by a specified year. A list of 100 of these influential firms can be found at RE100. According to the site, the private sector accounts for approximately half of the world’s electricity consumption. Switching this demand to renewables will accelerate the transformation of the global energy market and aid the transition to a low carbon economy.

Another purchasing coalition leadership example is Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and its Future of Internet Power initiative, which has set forth standards and principles for sourcing renewable power for data centers with a goal of “an internet powered by 100% renewable energy.” Infomart Silicon Valley has met the challenge laid out by BSR in 2017, and has done so in a transparent and repeatable way for other companies to follow.

Across the U.S., the definition of renewable energy can change by state and jurisdiction. The California Energy Commission has published a benchmark Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS), which is one of the most ambitious in the country. California requires energy service providers to purchase 27% renewables by 2017, 33% by 2020, and 50% by 2030. By purchasing 100% renewable energy by today’s RPS standard, Infomart is decades ahead of California’s requirement....

Infomart Has Lower Cost Of Power In Silicon Valley

Data Center Frontier reports Informart's cost of power is lower in Santa Clara:

In San Jose, Infomart uses the PG&E Direct Access program to offer power to customers at rates of 8.5 cents to 9 cents per kilowatt hour, much lower than the 11 to 12 cents per kWh rate seen by most PG&E customers in the area.

Sheputis was ahead of the curve, as he has been sourcing green power since 2010. As CEO of Fortune Data Centers, a wholesale data center provider which later became part of Infomart through a 2014 merger. Sheputis took advantage of a limited reopening of California’s Direct Access program to non-residential customers. Under Direct Access, eligible utility customers can choose from multiple energy suppliers.

PG&E, which serves San Jose, makes money by charging for transmission and distribution, rather than a profit on the sale of electricity itself.

Customers using Direct Access typically pay one fee from the third-party energy provider they select, and a separate fee from PG&E for distributing the power to their facility.

In San Jose, the primary advantage of Direct Access is pricing. It allows Infomart to offer cheaper rates than its immediate neighbors, but also to compete with providers in Santa Clara, where municipal utility Silicon Valley Power offers rates as low as 9.5 to 10 cents per kilowatt hour.

Sheputis said Infomart’s tenants could save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year on energy costs, or opt for renewable energy to further reduce carbon emissions, which is the focus in Oregon.
