Our data center is in sunny southern California. Our servers are powered by Mitsubishi lead free solar panels. We use no “dirty” electricity to power our servers.
Every server powered by the sun eliminates pollution equivalent to burning 107 gallons of gas each year.
Our team consists of several internet and tech savvy individuals who are passionate about what we do and the difference we are making in our world by providing 100% solar powered web hosting.
Using newly developed silver electrodes that offer superior weatherproofing, Mitsubishi Electric has perfected a technology for producing photovoltaic cells that does not require solder coatings. They’ve even achieved higher PV module conversion efficiency, taking advantage of the new product’s ability to more uniformly reflect the sun’s rays.
Traditionally, lead-solder coating has been required to ensure that PV modules are weatherproof and remain moisture-resistant for years on end. By developing environmentally friendly composite materials and manufacturing processes for silver electrodes used on the surface of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, Mitsubishi Electric has succeeded in producing cells that do not require a solder coating.
Mitsubishi Electric photovoltaic modules reflect a proactive approach to environmental regulations, and the determination to supply outstanding environmentally-friendly products. In January 2003 the company became the first among Japanese crystalline silicon photovoltaic cell manufacturers to begin volume production of solder-less cells and modules with lead-free solder.
Mitsubishi Electric has made a commitment to protect the environment. They were the first photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer to use lead-free solder in their modules. While traditional lead-solder modules use about 860 grams of lead, Mitsubishi Electric modules have 0 grams of lead.
They have simplified their manufacturing methods in ways that create a better product while increasing productivity. They also reduce work steps to provide for greater manufacturing yield. Overall, this realizes a five percent reduction in energy use during the manufacturing process.
Mitsubishi Electric’s photovoltaic product manufacturing plant is certified under the ISO 14001 environmental standard, and also features comprehensive water-conservation and recycling measures. They are advancing production operations with meticulous care for the environment. In addition, they use recyclable steel pallets to transport their modules instead of wooden pallets that break and end up in landfills.
