Our hosting systems currently run from two environmentally friendly data centres; a wind powered data centre in the UK and a solar powered data centre in the US. This gives us geographically diverse connections for core services that require this, such as DNS servers.
Wind Powered Data Centre
The UK based data centre we use is based in Lincolnshire. They buy all their electricity via Ecotricity on the 100% green tariff meaning this data centre is effectively 100% wind powered (though Ecotricity are also building the UKs first solar farm as I write this).

Solar Powered Data Centre
We also use a data centre based in California in the USA. They are the only 100% solar powered data centre in the world and they generate all their own power on-site from their own solar panel arrays.
