The Microsoft Corporation is planning to construct a new data center at Urban Industrial Way, in East Wenatchee. The facility will include 20 3.0‐megawatt electrical (MWe) generators, powered by a Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) Model C175-16 engine, and one 500-kilowatt electrical (kWe) generator, powered by a CAT Model C15 engine. These 21 generators will provide emergency backup power to the facility.
In addition to the Notice of Construction (NOC) application, Microsoft also submitted a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist for review. Ecology determined this proposal satisfies the requirements of Chapter 173-400 of the Washington Administrative Code. Ecology expects to approve this project, and the public is invited to comment. A public hearing will be held if Ecology determines there is significant public interest.
Use this comment form to submit a comment to Ecology. The public may request a public hearing. The request must include a reason for the request and why a public hearing is warranted. If significant public interest exists, Ecology may hold a public hearing.
