The thing about data centers is they aren’t ve
ry interesting. They’re just buildings filled with computers, which makes them somewhat boring. But what makes the new  McClellan/Sacramento” href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>McClellan/Sacramento building by Advanced Data Centers cool (and green), is the fact that its developers  ADC” href=”″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>have found a way to become more energy efficient, reducing its energy consumption by 25-30% of the industry standard. And it’s not just energy they’re saving – by using outside air to cool its interior, and planning a consumer based option for water cooling, ADC will be saving between $1.8 and $2 million. Although the building is currently under construction, ADC has already received LEED Platinum Pre-Certification, and plan to implement rain water saving features for landscape, bathroom, and cooling features. ADC just made data centers a little more interesting.
