Web Wiz Carbon Offsetting 2019-2020

30 November 2020, in Web Wiz News

Carbon Neutral OrganisationAs an eco-conscious company, we aim to keep our carbon emission as near to zero as we can, with the majority of our the electricity generated from our on-site solar array.

While our carbon footprint is small, we have still produced a small amount of CO2 over the past year which we have offset through Carbon Footprint Ltd [Carbon Neutral Certificate 2019-2020].

Our contributions go toward Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved projects to reduce deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest and local tree-planting projects here in the UK.

Carbon Negative Web, Email and Server Hosting

04 February 2020, in Web Wiz News, Hosting Services

Carbon NegativeThere has been a lot of talk in the press recently that companies like Microsoft are aiming to become Carbon Negative by 2030.


Carbon Negative is when your carbon footprint is less than neutral, so you have the effect of removing CO2 from the atmosphere.


Here at Web Wiz, we have been Carbon Balanced since 2010 and Carbon Negative since 2018. 


We offset our annual CO2 carbon emissions through VCS approved projects in the Amazonian Rainforest. We then offset the same amount of CO2 through tree planting projects within our region of the UK. As we offset our CO2 carbon emissions twice, this gives us a Negative Carbon Footprint.

Tesla Batteries Store Renewable Solar Energy

26 November 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

Tesla
After a successful trial of Tesla's rechargeable lithium-ion battery system over the past seven months to store excess Solar Power during the day to use overnight, we have now doubled the number of Tesla's lithium-ion batteries that we have.

The additional Tesla batteries will allow Web Wiz to be self-sufficient for electrical power needs for a large part of the year using only the renewable energy produced by our on-site Solar power generation. 

Vast Data Centres consume enormous amounts of power that add to the  IT sector global CO2 emissions which is on par with the airline industry* At Web Wiz, we believe in providing a sustainable alternative for customers to host their websites.

Eco Data Centre Achieves 100% Uptime Since Opening

20 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

100% Network UptimeIt has been 1 year since we opened our Eco Data Centre on the 17th of May 2018. In this year our Eco Data Centre has accomplished 100% Uptime with no outages to our Network.

To reach 100% Uptime, we have built a Multihomed Network with Diverse BGP Routing using multiple fibre connections from BT OpenReach and Virgin Media entering our facility at opposite ends of the building.

100% Uptime is an incredible achievement for a new Data Centre as there are usually teething issues in the first year, and we are all very proud of this achievement.

Even after dark, our Hosting is still powered by the Sun

09 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

TeslaThanks to our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system we are now able to store the excess energy generated by our on-site Solar Panel Array to use overnight, allowing our Eco Data Centre to be powered by the Sun even after the Sun has gone down!

Our Eco Data Centre and Office are powered by our on-site Solar Panel Array of 50 high-efficiency PV Solar Panels which can produce up to eight times more renewable electricity energy than we currently require. 

Our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system is able to store this excess energy which is then used to power our Eco Data Centre during the night.
