Texas 1 Is Powered Up!

With Texas 1 opening in just a few weeks, we are excited to report that the power systems and controls supporting the facility have been fully installed!

Texas 1 has fully redundant power from two separate substations. Our dual-feed power is carried all the way to the UPSs, meaning that each individual UPS lineup within the building can run on power from either substation.

This premium configuration has no single point of failure. We can distribute our active UPS connections independently across our dual utility feeds, spreading out the load and reducing the possibility of the entire facility being affected by a problem with one utility feed. If there is a utility issue on one feed, we can easily transfer the affected load over to the other feed.
