The Tennessee Valley Authority has identified a 28-acre site at Horizon Center in west Oak Ridge as a potential data center site, a designation that will help Oak Ridge recruit companies, an official said. “Having a primary data center site in Oak Ridge is a tremendous advantage and will definitely give us a competitive edge when recruiting data center prospects,” said Kim Denton, president and chief executive officer of the Oak Ridge Economic Partnership. TVA has designated the site as “ready to recruit” data centers, an OREP press release said. TVA hired Chicago-based Deloitte Consulting to identify and evaluate potential data center sites in TVA’s 80,000 square-mile region, which includes northern Alabama and six other southeastern states.
