Data Centers

With the latest technologies for small to large projects, Alberta is your place for a variety of data centers. Alberta is also the only deregulated electricity market in Canada, meaning we have some of the lowest electricity prices in North America.

Benefit from a low cost jurisdiction, reliable energy sources
and strong connectivity.

Low Cost

  • Wholesale power prices have averaged between $18/MWh and $34/MWh since 2015. Current low energy prices represent an opportunity to lock into low long-term rates
    • Competitive priced renewable energy; recent competition averaged $37/MWh for power from renewable energy sources
  • Minimal cooling cost – cool and dry climate minimizes the use of air conditioning to less than 10% of the year. When heating and/or cooling is needed, natural gas supplies are abundant, reliable, and low cost.
