Somewhat late to the party, jamesgreenblue.com is now a static website built using Hugo. Statically generated websites consume less energy as all pages and assets are pre-built – the promise of halving the carbon cost of my blog was a powerful motivator.
According to one website carbon calculator, now only 0.01 g of CO2 is produced every time someone visits a page. It’s also lovely to have faster load times, improved security and not have to think about Wordpress updates 😅
If you are looking to build a website that’s both speedy and environmentally friendly then I would recommend experimenting with static site generators.
