Going Green: The Power to Change
Share |
Today, teleports represent a $13 Billion sector of the global satellite communications industry. Teleports pay power bills ranging from $300,000 to over $1M per year per teleport while energy prices continue to be unpredictable and spiral upward. The current electrical distribution grid is overtaxed, making more frequent brownouts and blackouts likely; increasing per-kilowatt-hour costs appear inevitable. A recent benchmarking survey of three teleports in the U.S. revealed that it’s possible to save 20 – 40% in a facility’s power bills.

WTA has compiled resources to help Member teleports reduce their carbon emissions and do their part in ensuring a sustainable world. [WTA login and password required]
