According to Internap, the certification covers buildings that are designed and constructed with sustainable concepts and practices, which reduce a building's impact on the environment. Internap announced its Los Angeles data center in 2011, and opened up the buildling in September of 2012. Internap said the building incorporates such features as high-efficiency lighting, automated lighting controls, air-side economizer cooling controls and high-efficiency equipment, and also uses renewable electricity for 100 percent of its electrical load.
