Iron Mountain Goes 100% Renewable In Texas & Illinois

Iron Mountain Incorporated, one of the world’s leading storage and information management companies, announced this week that it has expanded its commitment to powering its data centers with renewable energy through new transactions which will ensure their Texas and Illinois facilities are powered by 100% renewable power. Iron Mountain has been actively seeking to ensure its data center services are met by 100% renewable power — unlike companies like Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has been failing to ensure its new data centers are met by new renewable power, according to research published earlier this year by Greenpeace. In early 2017 Iron Mountain announced that its data center business was powered by 100% renewables through a newly-signed 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with NJR Clean Energy Ventures. But as the company has expanded to meet the ever-increasing demand for online data services, so too have its power needs. In late 2018 Iron Mountain announced that the amount of renewable power meeting its global operations was increased to 75% through a newly-signed PPA with the 145 megawatt (MW) Pretty Prairie Wind Farm in Kansas. The PPA also brought the company’s data center business back up to 100% renewables.
