The Core Campus in Las Vegas, Nevada currently encompasses nine separate data centers with up to approximately 2.0 million GSF of space and up to 275 MW of 100% renewable power available to these facilities. We have one additional data center under construction at The Core Campus, which we expect will be operational in 2018 and that will provide approximately 340,000 GSF of additional space and have up to 40 MW of 100% renewable power available to the facility.
Switch powers the campus through the Switch Solar project is located in Clark County, Nevada northeast of Las Vegas on approximately 1,600 acres of land managed by the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone (SEZ).
There are two solar generation projects, Switch Station 1 and Switch Station 2 which produce 179-megawatts of power. The plants were originally part of a joint project between First Solar and NV Energy. In June 2017, EDF Renewable Energy acquired the two solar projects from First Solar.
