Innovation Grows: Carbon-Neutral Industrial Park in Reno


Construction begins in early 2021 on a zero-carbon footprint data center in Northern Nevada, with phase one scheduled for completion in early 2022.

Exciting Possibilities: Green Technology

Innovation and big thinking are behind many projects getting set to take off around the country in 2021. Take Nevada, for example, where the Reno Gazette Journal reports:

An ambitious green technology project in Nevada’s high desert aims to build the largest carbon-neutral industrial park powered by locally generated renewable energy in the United States. TerraScale, a firm that specializes in clean energy design, announced…plans to develop up to 3,700-acres of land in Churchill County just east of Reno for its Energos project. The project will start out with $220 million worth of development on 10 acres of land….

By its second phase, TerraScale expects the cost of development to reach $1 billion as it expands to 100 megawatts. The company is also in talks with several companies that are interested in constructing their own facilities at the Energos project site. The parties include a couple of energy storage firms and some manufacturing and logistics operations, which could bump the total development dollars for the Energos project past $3 billion.
