Zayo, a communications infrastructure company, recently announced the purchase of 86 million kWh of renewable energy certificates to power five of its zColo data centers in Illinois, Texas and New Jersey.

Zcolo, the data center arm of Zayo, also has other projects underway in its 46 data centers to improve efficiency and reduce energy consumption, including upgraded power and HVAC components, airflow management upgrades, lighting retrofits and other improvements.

As a result of Zayo’s purchase, the company is now an EPA Green Power Partner. Green power is zero-emissions electricity that is generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass and low-impact hydro. Using green power helps accelerate the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide and helps users reduce their carbon footprints.

“EPA applauds Zayo Group Holdings for its commitment to using green power and helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said James Critchfield, program manager of EPA’s Green Power Partnership. “Zayo is demonstrating leadership by furthering the case for accessible, affordable green power use and provides an excellent example for other businesses in the tech and telecom sector.”
