I know that Microsoft explores alternative renewable energy sources to power its data centers around the world but I didn't know that our Virtual Earth data center in Boulder, CO is pretty much completely powered by wind energy. In fact we just fired up one of our new "Container Data Centers" in Boulder, CO to house one of our 3D model processing centers. See picture below. I have to say that I've never been happier to be associated with a trailer :)

Anyhoo, you can all rest easy that Microsoft does not pursue evil methods for powering Virtual Earth so please feel free to use it constantly. Indeed, the fact that Virtual Earth is powered by renewable green energy gives one the kind of smug self satisfaction that only Green Energy can.  GEE, THANKS!!!
