You should contact your local Planning Officers at your local district council to check the planning regulations and requirements for your area. this is esential if you are considering wind turbines or air source heat pumps.

Is your website steam powered? Are you polluting the atmosphere with your website?...North Devon Web belongs to a network of websites that host in a green way. North Devon Web is helping to prevent the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year by hosting on ‘Green Servers’ – as a result, the network’s energy efficiency is equivalent to planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees, not driving 6.1 million miles, or removing 510 cars from the road.
The web hosting industry has a negative impact on the environment due to the energy hungry servers that are used to keep the Internet fueled. We can all try to limit the impact where possible and hosting on a green server is a step in the right direction. More and more people are buying from carbon ethical companies - tackling climate change is an important criteria.
The websites we host are powered by 100% wind energy.
The machines hosting our main site site and e-mail are fully eco-friendly! As energy awareness continues to grow, people are not just looking to make lifestyle adjustments, they want to make environmentally responsible decisions, power by renewable energy!
