It’s no secret that data centers use immense amounts of power, as a result companies are starting to think about alternative solutions that could be more sustainable and better for the environment. As a data center operator, Element Critical announced that their Houston and Austin colocation data centers are now powered by 100% renewable energy. Element Critical was able to achieve this goal by selecting NextEra Energy Resources, LLC. as its preferred green energy supplier. 

Element Critical’s agreement with NextEra Energy Resources brings access to innovative green power service options enabling Element Critical to drive momentum toward operating a 100% carbon neutral footprint. Element Critical has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement with a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources to deliver green power from an ERCOT-connected, Texas-based wind energy center. A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources will provide renewable energy capacity to accommodate Element Critical and their customers’ sustainability goals now and into the future.  

“Element Critical is now armed with a partner that will accelerate sustainability integration and create social value across our operations. Resolute environmental commitments are the future for our industry, and ultimately we are excited to be a part of creating a sustainable digital transformational journey for our customers.” said Shane Menking, COO of Element Critical. Element Critical recognizes that technology providers of all sizes must take action toward a low carbon future, seeking innovative ways to reduce emissions, target sustainability improvements, and influence renewable generation at every level.
