Green House Data, founded in 2007, has outgrown its current 10,000 square foot facility and, after looking at locations in other state,  company executives decided to stay and expand in Wyoming.

“Wyoming, in fact, is a fantastic place to operate a data center. It’s cold, its windy, and there’s tons of broadband, all three of those things are critically important to our data center and our data center’s success.”

President of Green House Data, Shawn Mills says it will be a 25,000 sq ft building within walking distance of their existing facility. He says it’ll be a $35 million dollar investment that should lead to, between 20 to 25 new high tech jobs.

Green House Data will continue to live up to its name with a building engineered for maximum energy efficiency.

“We will have no mechanical cooling inside of our data center facility. Historically, mechanical cooling takes one half of the entire electricity load to cool down the servers and we will have none. We will operate in an industry term, at a (peewee) of 1.6.”

He says that means savings they can pass on to their customers.

Mills says Green House data is listed by the EPA as 117th on a list of top green power purchasers in the country.

Some of their customers include the New Belgium Brewing Company , The National Outdoor Leadership School and Thought Equity.

Mills say the new building should be ready by 2013.
