Perspectives – I Love Solar Power But…

I completely agree with James. Better utilization of infrastructure is more environment friendly than having Solar Panels at the cost of clearing trees from the land.

I’m personally not crazy about clearing 171 acres in order to supply only 4% of the power at this facility. There are many ways to radically reduce aggregate data center environmental impact without as much land consumption. Personally, I look first to increasing the efficiency of power distribution, cooling, storage, networking and server and increasing overall utilization and the best routes to lowering industry environmental impact.
