I have a client that wants to host their site with a "green" hosting service. I am building the site with ASP.NET MVC and SqlExpress. I've looked around and found a few wind-power solutions, etc, but they all support PHP/MySql or other non-M$ frameworks.

Has anyone found a green host that they like working with? Thanks for any help.

Likely you'll have to determine where in the world their datacenter(s) are. Consider that some areas of the world burn coal, whereas some others use hydro generated electricity.

Are we allowed to promote our own companies? My company uses solar power. But our data centers don't run 100% off of them. Does that count?

Any new ideas on this, looking for a "GREEN" host. I see a lot of 100% wind powered or some other alternative energy hosts, but nothing that supports .NET and SQL Server 2005/2008.

Anyone have any fresh input on this?

Greenqloud offers geothermal-powered (e.g. no carbon offsets but true renewable energy), Amazon EC3 & S3 compatible cloud computing services with competitive pricing. Windows hosts also available.
