AISO.Net becomes the first public data center to join the U.S. Green Building Council
Romoland, CA -- AISO.Net (http://www.aiso.net), California's first and only solar-powered hosting company announced today that they are the first and only public data center member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). AISO.Net joined the USGBC and the next step is to obtain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the Council for the existing AISO.Net building.
The USGBC is the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from across the building industry, working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. The USGBC has established a green building rating system known as LEED, which is a nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. To achieve LEED certification, a building must earn LEED credits through using environmentally friendly products in construction and renovation.
According to the U.S. Green Building Council, no other U.S. public data center is currently a member. AISO.Net also strives to be one of the first LEED certified public data centers for web hosting. AISO.Net has already taken many steps in being environmentally friendly, but wants to go the extra mile to obtain LEED for Existing Buildings certification.
“We are doing everything we can do to be totally responsible and being the industry leader in environmental web hosting. Our data center is going to receive additional green enhancements, such as installing new carpeting made from recycled content, replacing all of our Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs with LED lighting, repainting the building using only LEED certified paint, installing an underground grey water tank which will water our outdoor landscaping and more. We are very excited about our membership in the U.S. Green Building Council, showing the world that AISO.Net truly cares about our environment.” says Phil Nail, technology manager for AISO.Net.
