RagingWire Receives $150,000 Energy Efficiency Rebate from SMUD

SACRAMENTO, California
March 24, 2009

RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc., Northern California's premier high-density colocation and hosting provider, has been awarded the maximum incentive rebate of $150,000 from Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). The rebate rewards RagingWire's energy savings achieved through innovative building design and implementation of green technologies. Some of the efforts include installing waterside economizers, oversized cooling towers, variable speed pumps, and highly efficient chillers. The result of this past year's efforts alone have created additional energy savings of over 2,000,000 kWh of electricity per year, which equates to reducing 1.6 million pounds of CO2 emissions, or the equivalent of driving a small family car around the Earth over 100 times. These savings are incremental to RagingWire's already environmentally friendly design.

Program Manager for SMUD's Savings By Design, Steve Oliver explains, "by being a partner in SMUD's Saving by Design program, RagingWire implemented energy efficiency measures that are good for our environment, good for their business and will help SMUD achieve our ambitious energy reduction goals."

RagingWire is one of SMUD's top 10 customers and the largest single building customer. RagingWire has developed a strategic working partnership with SMUD by incorporating proven energy saving technologies. Moreover, industry estimates demonstrate that using outsourced data centers is highly efficient, and can result in overall power reductions of up to 50%.

"We are quite proud of this remarkable achievement", said George Macricostas, CEO and Vice Chairman of RagingWire and a board member of the Jane Goodall Institute. "Social and environmental responsibility is in RagingWire's DNA. From the inception of our design, we knew that investing up front in environmentally responsible technologies was the right thing to do, and we have enjoyed those benefits for over eight years. It was right not only for the long term operational efficiency of our business, but more importantly it was the responsible decision for our community, and for generations to come."

The energy savings achieved and the knowledge and experience gained by the ongoing partnership with SMUD will be heavily called upon as RagingWire expands operations to a new LEED certified 200,000 square foot data center.
