Think that solar power can't power data centers? Think again. i/o Data Centers, an IT infrastructure provider is in the process of deploying a massive array of solar panels that will generate 4.5 megawatts of electricity to help power its data center.

I wish all governments buildings were done like this. Would save the taxpayer a fortune but of course they would find some empty pocket to fill somewhere.
