Fulfilling its White House American Business Act on Climate Pledge, Switch Will Be Powered By 180 MW Of
New Solar In Nevada
As of today, Switch and all of its SUPERNAP data centers and its more than 1,000 clients who are colocated
at their facilities, are powered by 100 percent renewable energy, making Switch the world’s largest
colocation data center environment to adopt all-inclusive green technology. Unlike other data center
providers who only purchase renewable energy credits, sometimes from several states away, in a
process that many believe leans towards ‘greenwashing,’ Switch will be producing the renewable
energy it needs to run its SUPERNAP data centers through new solar facilities operating in Nevada.
During the construction of its new 180-megawatts of solar generation projects, Switch Station 1 and Switch
Station 2, Switch has partnered with local utility NV Energy to utilize renewable energy from existing
facilities in the state.
Construction of Switch Station 1 and Switch Station 2 will be completed by First Solar in partnership with
NV Energy and Switch before the end of 2016.
