Question

Are droplets powered with green energy?

Hello,

I want to save the environment. For my future projects I’ll use only VPS servers powered with 100% green energy. So do you offer data centers powered with green energy?

This would be important to me too. maybe we should make some pressure. If customers don’t demand it they will do nothing.

I submitted a support ticket a couple of months back and got the following answer:

“Thanks for reaching out to us and we’d be happy to help point you in the right direction for your question regarding the power source of our data center locations. In our NYC area, our equipment is located in data centers operated either by Equinix or Telx, and our San Francisco data center is operated by Telx. Regarding your question, you can reach out to these companies and inquire directly about the source of their utility power.”

DO, answer the damn question. The refusal of answering the question is actually worse than saying that you have a plan of going 100% green energy in x time but you’re not there yet.
