We're happy to share our interview with The Spectator, the city and regional newspaper for Hamilton, Ontario. The city is currently working hard to foster Clean Technology Development, and our wind-powered web hosting and 'eco-friendly' approach is a good match.

We're very excited to present this exclusive interview.

From the article:

We're very happy to announce that our web sites are now directly powered by wind energy. CartaNova is built around sustainable principles - and we required web hosting to match.
After some searching we were excited to strike up a new business relationship with Canvas Dreams in Portland, Oregon. Our new server(s) reside in a secure data center powered by Renewable Energy initiatives including the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. [video]
