Document Description
The project proposes to construct three data center buildings (SV-12, SV-13, SV-14), each approximately 188,000 sf in size with a total of about 564,000 sf, on an approximately 18-acre site in south San Jose. The new data center buildings would house computer servers and supporting equipment for private clients in environmentally controlled structures. The proposed two-story data center buildings would each include seven generators to provide backup electricity. Construction of a new substation (Santa Teresa Substation) at the existing PG&E Edenvale Service Center, a 115 kV transmission line extension to the substation from the existing Metcalf-Edenvale 115 kV transmission line, and two new 21 kV distribution feeders that would extend along Via Del Oro to the data centers site are also proposed.
