Operated by:

The Cyxtera's CW1 site in Moses Lake, Washington, with electricity supplied in part by the nearby Columbia River. More than 85 percent of the utility power supplied to the facility is hydro-electric. Data centers have appeared all along the river in both Washington State and Oregon. The river and its hydroelectric power are supporting a growing northwest data center scene, one also complemented by low natural disaster risk (lowest seismic rating in the western United States) and friendly sales tax breaks on data center equipment purchases.

In addition to low cost hydropower, the Washington climate allows for significant use of free-air cooling, which drives better Power Usage Effectiveness. (Source: DCK Link)

Cyxtera's CW1 site in Moses Lake, Washington was acquired via a $2.8 billion transaction to acquire 57 datacenters from CenturyLink. The transaction which closed in May 2017 created Cyxtera Technologies.
