NetApp the “unnamed customer” with $1.4M rebate

Another update to the story on data center utility rebate programs: I just heard from Joe Miller, the facilities operations manager for NetApp in North Carolina. Miller told me that NetApp is the “unnamed customer” that Mark Bramfitt was mentioning when talking about a $1.4 million rebate it gave to a customer last year.

NetApp received the money for the design of a new data center in Sunnyvale, Calif. Energy efficiency measures taken at the facility include airside economizers, flywheel UPSes, a variable-speed primary chiller plant, and more efficient transformers. PG&E estimates at the time that the NetApp data center design will save PG&E about 11 million kilowatt-hours of energy every year, which equates to savings of $1.2 annually and a carbon footprint reduction of almost 3,400 tons.

Thanks to Miller for identifying this “unnamed customer.”
