Power rates are just one of the important considerations for a data center site selection. The Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities survey shows that LPC (Longmont Power and Communications) has some of the lowest rates in Colorado and also compares favorably nationally.
The average industrial rate was about 4.7 cents per kilowatt hour and the average large commercial rate was around 6.2 cents per kilowatt hour compared to 7.1 cents and 9.8 cents in the rest of the State. Average rates can be misleading, as pockets of rate differentials exist throughout North America. That’s why it’s critical that data center site selectors put their boots on the ground and investigate the geographies under consideration.
