Siting council will not hold public hearing on Waterford data center

The Connecticut Siting Council decided Thursday not to hold a public hearing on a controversial petition from Millstone owner Dominion Energy Nuclear Connecticut that would modify the boundaries of the Millstone property for use by proposed data center. Approval of the construction of the data center would instead be up to the town, he said. In February, the town agreed to a deal with NE Edge LLC that signaled it was open to the idea of hosting two two-story data buildings that would provide approximately 1.5 million square feet of storage for cloud and data servers. The centers would be supplied with energy from Millstone. NE Edge would construct a third building, a switchyard, that would receive power from Millstone and distribute it to the data center.
