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.
