Sabey Data Centers, a premier national global services provider, has announced the achievement of reaching 7 ENERGY STAR Certifications based on the seven buildings in their nationwide data center portfolio. The 7 buildings at their data center facilities, Ashburn, VA; East Wenatchee, WA; Quincy, WA; and Seattle, WA, all scored above a 95 out of a total score of 100 for the EPA’s ENERGY STAR recognition. Most notably, the East Wenatchee location received a perfect score, meaning that it is more energy efficient than 100 percent of similar properties nationwide.
According to the EPA’s ENERGY STAR guidelines, to be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification as a data center, one must be operational for at least a year, report on UPS energy and total site energy, refrain from significant mixed energy use in the building, and receive a minimum score of 75 and go through the certification process. Not only has Sabey met the minimum score, they have completely surpassed it!
“Efficiency also saves money for our customers, in the form of lower electricity bills. ENERGY STAR provides independent, 3rd part proof of how efficiently we operate,” said John Sasser, CTO at Sabey Data Centers.
The 7 buildings represent over 50 percent of Sabey’s eligible ENERGY STAR-eligible buildings, and they are consistently working towards getting the rest certified. This comes as no surprise due to Sabey’s positioning on sustainability efforts within the data center industry. Sabey has continuously been building and operating energy-efficient data centers that reduce environmental impact while continuing to align with their customers’ sustainability initiatives and renewable energy requirements. As the company has previously stated, they are dedicated to reaching their net-carbon goal by 2029 and will continue to adopt state-of-the-art technology and techniques to benefit their business objectives as well as their customers.
