Poll: Green Power and Data Center Site Selection

Facebook said yesterday that its data center site location policy “now states a preference for access to clean and renewable energy.” The announcement ended a long-running feud between the social network and the environmental group Greenpeace, which had targeted Facebook in a social media and PR campaign because the company’s two data centers in Oregon and North Carolina each relied upon utility power that originated primarily from coal.
You find out the results when you take the poll. I put my vote in and saw I was the first to vote. so, now 100% say renewable energy is a factor. :-) But, of course I am biased thinking Green Data Centers are important. Is there such a thing as an unbiased opinion?
