Data Centers

“A multilocation data center client received false information from a utility that was misapplying a local tariff provision. Thanks to the work of our analysts, the utility eventually agreed to revise their interpretation of the tariff and rescind a long-term agreement, resulting in $17 million in savings to the client!”

- Ellen Northrup, Supervisor of Commodity Management, 5
