Edge Centres is developing data centers in St. Louis, Missouri, and Portland, Oregon, it has announced. The facilities will be powered by renewable energy, with just under 1 MW of solar infrastructure, a 48-hour battery, and UPS backup equipment, supporting 64 1kW quarter racks.

In a statement on LinkedIn, the company said: "Our Edge journey into the US has begun in the wonderful city of St. Louis. STL is an amazing city with both rich culture and an amazing heritage. It also has fantastic weather that allows for indirect free-cooling to be used 24/7, 8-9 months of the year."

Meanwhile, in a post, Jonathan Eaves, Edge Centres founder and CEO, said: "We have selected Austin TX as HQ for Edge Centres. With the initial three locations now locked in as Los Angeles (EC101), St Louis (EC102), and Portland (EC103), we are underway."
