Cologix Finds New Source Of Customers: Energy Efficiency Program

Denver-based data center operator Cologix appears to have found a new source for customers: energy efficiency programs. According to Cologix, it an energy efficiency program in Ohio, which provides incentive payments to business customers to increase their energy efficiency, is offering up incentive payments to Bob Evans Farms--as a result of that company relocating its IT operations to a Cologix data center in Columbus, Ohio. Cologix said that the payment is the first corporate user to qualify for those incentives by leveraging third-party data center services. Cologix has replaced an inefficient, legacy in-house data center with its own, energy efficient data center. The award came through the AEP Ohio Energy Efficiency Data Center Program.
