Data center developer, owner, and operator, EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure, has announced the expansion of its data center campus in Mesa, Arizona.

Located in the greater Phoenix area, the Mesa data center campus is designed to support a minimum critical load capacity of up to 200MW when fully built out. The campus is also expected to provide a total space of over 1.1 million square feet which will be delivered across current and future developments.

“We are pleased to see EdgeCore moving forward with the expansion of their air-cooled data center campus in Mesa. EdgeCore’s sustainable approach to providing critical data center service is important to the City of Mesa,” said Bill Jabjiniak, Mesa Economic Development Director.

In the aspect of sustainability, EdgeCore also announced that it has received the Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes for Existing Buildings’ certification due to its adoption of sustainable building best practices at the initial data center development on the Mesa campus.

“Water scarcity is a growing concern in several states, including Arizona. EdgeCore endeavors to make decisions with the good of our environment as well as our customers in mind,” said Jason Evans, Vice President Energy and Sustainability, EdgeCore.

“As such, we implemented an air-cooled design in our data centers in Mesa, Arizona, that includes an ultra-efficient close-looped chilled water system, which carries a benchmark water usage effectiveness (WUE) rating below .01 L/kWh—a benefit to both the environment and our tenants’ total cost of ownership.”

EdgeCore further promises its customers up to 20 years cost savings opportunities which are powered by the Mesa data center qualification for Tax incentives from the state of Arizona that include a 10-year TPT or sales tax and use tax exemptions at the state, county, and local levels on qualifying data center equipment purchases and labor services.  Also, the campany is getting another 10-year tax incentive for constructing its Mesa facility using green building standards.

In line with EdgeCore’s expansion plans, the company acquired a 7.6 acre land in Northern Virginia where it plans to develop a 36MW data center facility.
