On Wednesday, July 7, EasyStreet hosted a media event to celebrate the completion of our hot aisle/cold aisle containment project and to promote our new green data center expansion.
Representatives from Energy Trust of Oregon presented EasyStreet with a $65,000 incentive check for completing the energy efficiency project, which will save over 500,000 kW per year.
Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle was also on hand to congratulate EasyStreet for its contributions to the city’s growth and sustainability initiatives.
John Hass, a Director at Intel’s Eco-Technologies Programs Office and a member of The Green Grid, spoke about PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) as the basis of evaluation for the EPA’s Energy Star for Data Centers Program.
Executives from other organizations who were instrumental in enabling EasyStreet’s sustainability initiatives also participated in the event, including Archinetix, Inc., USI Insurance Services, U.S. Bank, Evergreen Financial, Northwest Bank, the Oregon Department of Energy and Portland General Electric.
We’ll share more information later, but wanted to provide some links to the media coverage we’ve seen so far.
