Bacardi, Datapipe Adopt Renewable Energy

A rum producer and a hosted IT provider are taking different routes to adopting renewable energy – one quite visible, the other … not so much.

Through a power purchase agreement, Bacardi has added two 250 kilowatt wind turbines at its distillery near San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The wind turbines, which can be seen for miles around, should provide enough power to run the adjacent Casa Bacardi Visitor Center, which gets about 250,000 visitors a year, according to a press release.

Bacardi is working with Aspenall Energies, which owns the turbines and sells the power back to Bacardi.

The turbines should produce about a million kWh of electricity a year.

Meanwhile, Datapipe has committed to purchasing 9 million kilowatt hours of green power a year.

Datapipe, a provider of managed hosting and IT services, will use renewable energy credits to offset electricity used by its Somerset One data center.

As part of the deal, Datapipe has joined the EPA’s Green Power Partnership, according to a press release.
