A rooftop solar array reflects a sunny Colorado sky as guests, including U.S. Representative Jared Polis, tour the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) during the Green Data Center open house on May 4, 2012. The Green Data Center project uses new cooling technology that uses 90 percent less energy than traditional air conditioning, and an extensive rooftop solar array that results in a total energy savings of 70 percent. —Credit: Natasha Vizcarra/NSIDC
