We are turning 21 this year! We couldn't think of a better way than to get together and discuss a significant environmental issue facing our county - with pizza and birthday cake! 🎂Plus, register now and get a free tree!
Data Centers are popping up here, there, and everywhere in Prince William County. Does it feel like a runaway train? Many proposals are outside appropriate industrial spaces and instead are next to neighborhoods and protected natural areas.
But what exactly is a Data Center and why do we care where they are located? Can we sustain this level of development?
While Data Centers are part of our modern reality, where they are located and, as it turns out, how many and how fast they're being built work against our efforts to:
address climate change,
protect our historic and natural resources,
maintain air and water quality, and
access reliable power at affordable rates.
