Cisco predict that by 2019, 86% of computing workloads will be carried out within a cloud computing environment. This is leading to the dramatically increasing need for data centre expansion which in turn is consuming more and more of the world’s natural resources to generate the electricity needed to power them. This paper uses a fictitious electronics recycling company called Compucycle to investigate the feasibility and cost of integrating solar power generation into Compucycle’s IT Infrastructure compared to completely outsourcing it to a cloud service provider. It was discovered that a complete solar power solution was not feasible due to the excessive costs it brought to the business. It was then decided that two out of four proposed solutions in this paper were a good fit for the business. The first being a hybrid power solution where a small portion of power is derived from the grid along with solar power generation. The second being the outsourced option. The third and fourth solutions were disregarded due to the fact that one was completely unfeasible and the other went against what Compucycle wanted to achieve.
