"NetApp RTP Data Center is First Ever Data Center to Earn EPA's Energy
 Star for Superior Energy Efficiency", July 14, 2010

  "today announced that its dynamic data center located at the NetApp
   technology center in Research Triangle Park (RTP) has earned the U.S.
   Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) prestigious ENERGY STARR,
   the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior
   energy efficiency. The RTP data center, which opened in 2009, is the
   first data center to achieve this distinction from the EPA."

  "EPA's ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess
   how efficiently their data centers use energy relative to similar data
   centers nationwide. A data center that scores a 75 or higher on EPA's
   1-100 scale is eligible for the ENERGY STAR. The RTP data center
   achieved a near perfect mark by scoring a 99."
