THE HEALTH OF HUMANITY AND THE WORLD IS AT STAKE . LOCATIONS LIKE THIS 641-ACRE GREEN ENERGY HUB WILL PROTECT MILLIONS OF ACRES OF FORESTRY , WILDLIFE AND HUMAN LIVES BY REDUCING CARBON IN OUR ATMOSPHERE .
converting water to green hydrogen fuel used on-site or transmitted off-site by blending into natural gas lines that currently cross through the property .
The SGEC exhibits the ideal combination of clean hydrogen production , hydrogen consumers and energy-intensive customers ( the data centers ) all in proximity with a connective infrastructure .
These green data centers can ultimately benefit not only from on-site SMR electricity production , but also hydrogen-fuelled generator backup power .
The need for this project is clear .
For example , the data centers in Loudoun County , VA , alone use about 20 % of Virginia ’ s power capacity while handling upwards of 70 % of the world ’ s data traffic .
Considering the exponential data and energy growth today , SGEC will provide much-needed support to America and the world ’ s Internet traffic with positive national security implications – at a site that is highly suited for new nuclear .
Melissa Rollins , Surry County Administrator , said : “ Surry County ’ s optimal location lets companies easily locate in the nation ’ s first green integrated energy center . The county ’ s strategic investments in growing its energy workforce have made it even more
