Newly-launched web design and hosting company Lightbeing Creations has signed a deal with the world's first solar-powered datacentre provider in a move that will offer its customers a low-carbon means of running their websites.
The deal with green web hosting company AISO.net will see Lightbeing Creations rent space in the company's Californian datacentre, which is powered by 120 solar panels.
"The datacentre has been designed from the ground up in order to limit its environmental impact, and while its back-up gas generator is tested every week, it has not yet been used, " said Lightbeing founder Dan Knowlson.
The company said it would be targeting small and medium sized businesses with its zero carbon website design and hosting offering.
Knowlson said that the new venture was also souring energy for its UK office from green electricity provider Ecotricity and was committed to measuring and reducing its carbon output each year.
