Cumulus Data’s Zero Carbon Data Center is One Step Closer to Serving Customers

Cumulus Data has much to celebrate as it announces a key milestone in the construction of its flagship Susquehanna data center campus in northeast Pennsylvania. The construction of the powered shell for its first 48-megawatt, 300,000 square-foot data center is complete and available for lease, with various fiber routes in service. 

The 1,200-acre campus is the first of its kind in the U.S. It will provide zero-carbon, low-cost, reliable energy generated by Talen Energy’s adjacent Susquehanna nuclear power generation facility. The Cumulus data centers will be directly connected to the 2.5-gigawatt Susquehanna power stations, without intermediation by legacy electric transmission and distribution utilities, providing data center customers significant value and competitive advantages. 

“Our flagship Cumulus Susquehanna data center campus is positioned to welcome its first tenant and commence commercial operations this year. We look forward to advancing our mission to solve the energy ‘trilemma’ which we define as the rapidly increasing consumer demand for zero-carbon, low-cost, and reliable electricity by data center customers, beginning with our first Cumulus Susquehanna data center campus.”  — CEO Alejandro “Alex” Hernandez.

Nuclear Power as an Option for Data Centers

With the rising demand across the data center industry for more sustainable operations, industry leaders are searching for options that are zero-carbon, as well as low cost and reliable. With nuclear being one of the most reliable sources of renewable energy, it will be a viable source of power for the data center campus. Additionally, the direct-connect, on-site power generation model enables industry-leading total cost of ownership (“TCO”) with the most attractive power rate in the U.S.
