ALBANY, N.Y. – Leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that their flagship data center in Albany, New York has once again earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance. TurnKey Internet’s data center is the 2nd in the state of New York to achieve the highest environmental standards and earn the ENERGY STAR data center certification. TurnKey’s facility utilizes state-of-the-art technology and 100% renewable energy to provide the greenest cloud-based IT services for clients all over the world.

TurnKey Internet runs their ENERGY STAR certified data center with 100% renewable hydro and solar power. It is equipped with rooftop solar panels, and uses hydro-power to further supplement their renewable energy initiatives as beneficiaries of Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Recharge New York’ power program. The data center is SSAE 18 SOC 2 certified, confirming the highest tier of reliability. The facility features low-voltage servers stored in ultra-efficient cold containment pods. These pods deliver precision spot-cooling to temperature-regulated server racks, which use thirty-three percent less energy than traditional data centers.


ENERGY STAR certified data centers and facilities are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the Unites States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

“We’re honored to once again earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at our Albany, New York data center and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation,” said Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet. “TurnKey’s green data center was built with sustainability in mind, and our commitment only evolves as the world-wide demand for energy consumption continues to multiply.” He continued to say, “Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.”

In 2013, The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation awarded TurnKey Internet the Environmental Excellence Award for innovative facility design and outstanding commitment to environmental sustainability, social responsibility and economic viability.
