365 Main Reduces Consumption

SAN FRANCISCO -- Data center developer and operator 365 Main announced today that by implementing energy-efficient measures recommended through the innovative green 'Savings by Design' program, sponsored in part by Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E), the company will reduce annual energy consumption at its newest data center by more than 1.67 million kilowatt hours (kWh), representing enough energy to power approximately 242 homes each year.

Savings by Design, a program sponsored by four of California's largest utilities, encourages the design and construction of high-performance and energy-efficient non-residential buildings. 365 Main participated by inviting PG&E and an independent third party to review design drawings of its newest data center, an 111,000-square-foot facility located in Oakland, Calif., and recommend design changes that would reduce power usage.

PG&E shares the cost incurred by participants in Savings by Design by issuing participants a lump rebate check, and the efficient improvements generally pay for themselves within 3 years. 365 Main was awarded a $168,000 rebate check from PG&E that will help offset the premium costs of the improvements.
