+ - Facebook's Servers Use as Much Power as Entire Cou->

Submitted by 1sockchuck
1sockchuck (826398) writes "The first phase of the Facebook data center in Oregon used 28 megawatts of utility power, local officials said this week. That's not extraordinary for a facility of that size in most data center hubs. But it stands out in Crook County, Oregon where all the homes and business other than Facebook use 30 megawatts of power. The economics of Facebook'(TM)s presence in Oregon are outlined in a new study, which asserts that the Prineville facility has brought tens of millions of dollars into the local economy. The second phase of the Facebook project is now underway, and the local utility grid is being expanded to add capacity."
