Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet Inc is to receive 220kW of additional hydropower from Niagara Falls under New York State’s ReCharge NY program
ReCharge NY is one of the signature economic development initiatives in New York State. Through the program, qualifying businesses statewide can access hydroelectric power that is specially allocated by the New York Power Authority. Companies receiving allocated power have made commitments such as remaining in the state, growing employment, expanding operations, and making significant local investments in their businesses.
TurnKey Internet was originally granted hydroelectric power at the start of the ReCharge NY program in 2013, following the opening of TurnKey’s state-of-the-art, 100% green powered data center. Increased demand for online cloud services in recent years has come with tremendous growth for both TurnKey’s business and power needs. This growth led to additional job creation as well as significant local investments and was the foundation for the additional hydroelectric power awarded from the program.
“TurnKey Internet is pleased to continue its partnership with the ReCharge NY program,” said Adam Wills, president and CEO. “The additional hydroelectric power will allow us to keep expanding our presence in New York’s Tech Valley, as well as provide more employment opportunities in the capital region. He continued, “This is yet another green milestone that reinforces our commitment to clean, sustainable practices while continuing to provide uncompromised, enterprise-class data center and cloud solutions to clients across the world.”
The company was among 23 companies statewide that were granted the hydroelectricity under the program.
