Get to know the services Switch offers during a virtual walk-through of the organization’s one of a kind data center.
This virtual tour will include still pictures, 360-degree images, and videos that enable attendees to visit a Switch data center and see its patented technologies from the comfort of their own computers.
Terri Cooper, Switch’s Senior Vice President of Business Development, will discuss technology trends that are changing the data center landscape.
Attendees will also learn about the largest behind the meter solar and battery project that is being constructed in Reno at the Switch Citadel campus.
In July, Switch and Capital Dynamics broke ground on the largest behind-the-meter solar plus battery project in the world. This groundbreaking will continue Switch Founder and CEO Rob Roy’s Gigawatt Nevada solar energy and battery vision to develop one of the largest solar and battery storage projects in the technology industry. It will create more than 1,000 new jobs.
The massive scale of these phases of Gigawatt 1 will use thousands of solar panels made by First Solar, an American company, and battery storage utilizing Tesla Megapack, which is manufactured in Storey County, Nevada, at the Tesla Gigafactory.
With these new groundbreakings in Clark and Storey counties, plus the original Townsite development, Gigawatt 1 will soon generate a total of 555 MW of solar power and create 800 MW hours of battery storage. Additionally, the Storey County location will be the largest behind-the-meter solar project in the world, producing 127MW and will include a 240 MW hour battery storage system. Behind-the-meter projects generate power off the public grid, placing no burden on legacy public utility production.
