Green Certification for Sonic.net

At the Sonoma County Board of Supervisor’s meeting this last Tuesday, Sonic.net received certification under the Sonoma Green Business Program.

Of course, Sonic.net’s business processes and facilities utilize best common practices. This means recycling, minimized use of paper, low flow fixtures, etc.

But, our big green effort is a massive update to our data center cooling plant.

We have replaced our traditional Liebert data center AC units with a huge new system from Bell Products of Napa. Bell’s been working on this project for over a year for us, and it’s a massive update. The new system adds a huge amount of capacity, and reduces power usage by a shocking amount.

It’s wonderful to receive recognition for our investment and practices from the Business Environmental Alliance and the County Board of Supervisors.
