Climate change seems to be a real threat for us and in order to protect the environment and the human society we need to reduce the use of fossil fuels for electricity and heating sources and shift to renewable energy such as solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal energy, biomass, wave energy, etc.
As the technology used to produce renewable energy becomes more efficient and more affordable, more and more companies have decided to invest in renewable energy.
Today, billions of dollars are being rolled between companies, the government and several NGOs, to increase the generation capacity for clean energy in the country.
Michael R. Bloomberg (the former mayor of New York City) seems to be a big fan of renewable energy giving the fact that he decided to invest more than $70 million in renewable energy throughout the U.S.
He is pushing this way Cincinatti and other major U.S. cities to switch from coal and other fossil fuels to alternative energy such as solar power.
The money is offered through Bloomberg Philanthropies and as part of the Bloomberg’s American Cities Climate Challenge, which is a two-year program created to accelerate work already being done by the cities receiving the reward.
Stock advisors such as fool consider that power producers have long-term prospects, so they can provide safe and reliable stocks in the renewable energy and solar industry today.
Other companies that are major consumers of electricity, have decided to cover at least a part of their monthly energy demand from renewable energy produced by solar panels to pay less on energy bills.
You can reduce your company’s carbon footprint by simply changing your utility company with one that uses only clean energy provided by major solar and wind farms or hydroelectric power plants.
It is way more efficient to create quality content and get higher rankings, which converts in free organic traffic provided by major search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, Yandex etc.
The free organic traffic provided by search engines is long term traffic and can convert well because is produced by real people.
Being a source of clean energy for servers, renewable energy can turn search engines into devices running on clean electricity with zero emissions.
If the servers used by search engines, hosting companies, SEO companies, major online retailers (eCommerce Companies), would be powered by renewable energy, we can consider that the entire internet becomes green and friendly with the environment.
Another major fan of renewable energy is Google.
The tech giant has decided to invest $2 billion in wind and solar power projects across three continents to supply the company with clean electricity.
Google signed 18 new energy deals, which is considered the biggest corporate purchase of renewable energy in history.
They announced that almost half of the investments will be made in European countries such as Finland, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark, while a significant portion of the investments will be made in U.S. states such as North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.
Google also plans to add 125 MW (megawatts) of renewable energy capacity in Chile to supply its data centers with clean electricity.
The renewable energy purchase agreements totals 1,600 MW (1.6 GW), which means that over an entire year, Google will produce more renewable energy than states like Lithuania or Uruguay.
SEO companies are trying to use green energy provided by solar power plants or wind farms to reduce their carbon footprint to the minimum.
Companies and freelancers interested to improve their presence online by increasing their rankings in search engines are using the SEO services provided by Semify to reach higher rankings in a sustainable way.
The entire internet is going green, so if you own a company that you want to rank high in search engines, try to switch to renewable energy because only this way you can stay in trend, and you will also pay less on energy bills, while protecting the environment.
