A large group of residents are opposing plans by NE Edge, LLC to construct a data center on Millstone Nuclear Power station property. A petition opposing the project by the group “Protect Waterford” has collected nearly 700 signatures. The group is concerned about noise from the project, as well as what they say is NE Edge’s lack of experience and troubled background. First Selectman Rob Brule said he has heard the concerns of residents who have called and emailed him and that he will not act to the detriment of the town. According to the agreement, the town would receive more than $231 million in lieu of taxes over 30 years from NE Edge. This would make NE Edge the second-largest taxpayer in town behind Dominion Energy, LLC, the owner of Millstone.
