Project Scope

Energos Reno is a development near Reno, NV that aims to enable secure, swift storage and transmission of data between government agencies and commercial clients.

The modular data center campus will be built in two phases, 20MW for an initial anchor tenant planned for completion in 2022, with ability to expand to 100MW.

Smart Design

This design also offers unique “survivability” in terms of catastrophic loss risk mitigation to a customer’s data. It should be a priority location for federal and state governments and industry partners that support government data.

As recently illustrated by power outages from the East coast to the West coast, assured power from traditional utility companies is not guaranteed.


The site of TerraScale’s future Energos Reno data center campus is near business-friendly Reno in Fernley, NV. 

Creating Local Value

The Energos Reno project is expected to strengthen and contribute towards the region’s economic vitality and growth as well as create new jobs.

TerraScale’s Energos Reno project will also provide research and development opportunities with major universities across the US to offer future internships, research opportunities, jobs, and more.
