|POWER | One of the reasons Santa Clara is such an in-demand data center market is cost of power. Silicon Valley Power (SVP) provides the lowest power costs in Northern California.
In the wholesale data center business, one cent per kwh difference can mean $875,000 in savings/waste for a 10 MW data center per year depending on which side of the change you are on. All California utility providers passed through rate increases for 2023, so while costs are increasing, SVP remains cheaper than PG&E and other regional players.
|Renewable Power Sources | California passed SB100 which envisions a California with a greenhouse gas-free energy supply by 2045. SVP is ahead of schedule, with 50% of the entire grid projected as renewable by 2026. Renewable energy is in abundance and is delivered at the same cost as carbon-based energy sources.
Power Reliability | Silicon Valley Power has earned a Diamond Level Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. The Diamond Level is the highest designation that a utility can earn.
|NETWORK | Northern California is one of the ideal North American regions for connectivity services. Since the early days of MAE West, data has flowed through the region to and from APAC.
The original Palo Alto Internet Exchange or PAIX is now located inside an Equinix meet-me Room (MMR) and offers interconnection with hundreds of networks.
|Multiple subsea cable landing stations are close to Silicon Valley including Manchester and Morro Bay for access to Japan, Southeast Asia, China, Singapore and other APAC hubs.
Dark fiber access is abundant with multiple providers offering fiber ring access to regional carrier hotels / MMRs.
|RISK PROFILE | As it pertains to economic risk, the state of California is one of the strongest in the United States: second highest GDP growth in the nation between the fourth quarter of 2019 and first quarter of 2022.
Silicon Valley's tech-centric connection will play an even more important role in the state in 2023 and beyond.
|Risk of Natural Disaster | Northern California is a high-risk region for fires, earthquakes, drought and other disasters. Safety / Threat Level | Out of the 15 safest large cities in the US (with a population over 300,000) ranked by Forbes, Silicon Valley was number 9, demonstrating its high quality of life.|
