The details on eBay’s center
Construction on eBay’s new center in South Jordan should begin soon and be completed by mid-2013, said Dean Nelson, vice president of Global Foundation Services.
Named Quicksilver, the new 15-acre facility will be adjacent to the company’s existing Topaz data center.
The new center will become eBay’s third facility in Utah that it says demonstrates a commitment to greener business.
In April, the company installed a 665 kilowatt solar array on top of its existing center, which meets LEED energy certification standards. It also said its new customer-service center in Draper was planned to meet LEED standards.
The company said it “played a central role” in passage earlier this year by the Utah Legislature of a bill that allows energy consumers to buy and transmit power directly from renewable-energy developers.
