MINIMIZING POWER COSTS  

  • Air Cooling: Much of the state is classified as a cold desert, which allows for ambient air cooling. Naturally low humidity levels are ideal for data center operation.
  • Electricity and Natural Gas: Utah offers some of the cheapest electricity and natural gas rates in the U.S. (average commercial rate: $0.08/kWh).
  • Rocky Mountain Power has a capacity of 10,894 MW, plus its Wattsmart energy efficiency and load management programs help residential and business customers conserve natural resources, reduce emissions and keep electricity costs low.
  • Rocky Mountain Power also offers sustainable solutions via its voluntary Green-e® Energy Certified Blue SkySM program, which ranks among the top five renewable programs by U.S. DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

PRIORITIZING SUSTAINABILITY

  • Salt Lake City wants every residence, business and building in Salt Lake City limits to be powered by 100% renewable energy by 2030. (Every city-owned building will be on clean energy by the end of 2020.)
  • Utah’s power plants have transitioned to natural gas and steam over the last 15 years; renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are rapidly growing.

LEVERAGING SALT LAKE CITY’S PRIME DATA CENTER ENVIRONMENT  

  • Fast Connectivity: Utah boasts the second-fastest internet connectivity speeds in the U.S. (third-fastest globally), with an extensive fiber infrastructure. Google Fiber chose both Salt Lake City and Provo City for its pilot program, out of thousands of competing communities.
  • Presence: Google is opening a data center in Salt Lake City by 2020. They chose this area because it is known for its healthcare, financial services, and IT industries.
  • Government Presence: NSA uses the Utah Data Center located nearby at Camp Williams near Bluffdale, Utah.
  • Associated Costs: Relative to other regional data center hubs, such as Portland, Phoenix, Las Vegas, or Denver, Utah offers lower costs for labor, construction, land, permits, and other vital operation and development costs, according to Utah’s Economic Development Corporation.

OPTIMAL FOR ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT 

  • Salt Lake City, Utah’s capital, is located in the northern part of the state, 95 miles south of the Idaho border, roughly equidistant between Nevada and Colorado, and about an hour’s drive from Wyoming to the northeast. The area has a low risk of natural disasters; Utah ranks fifth in the U.S. for national disaster safety.
  • Salt Lake City International Airport has the best “ease of access” in the U.S., as well as having one of the nation’s fastest curb-to-plane times. The airport has direct, daily flights to the 19 busiest airports in the U.S. and is going through a $1.8 billion expansion.
  • Salt Lake City’s primarily services-based economy has seen robust year-over-year job growth. Thanks in part to an influx of high-tech businesses to the city’s Silicon Slopes area, Utah has attracted high concentrations of software developers, web developers, computer and information research scientists, and many other IT-related occupations.
