Solar Powering the Facebook Data Center 


Kevin Bassaleck

Everyone is curious about the solar facilities that will power the Facebook Data Center. Our August speaker, Kevin Bassaleck, President of Affordable Solar, is the man with the answers. Affordable Solar won the contract to meet Facebook’s requirement that all of their power requirements for the new Los Lunas facility be met with solar power.


Come to the August 21 meeting to learn the answers to these questions and more:



    -How many acres does Affordable Solar expect to use for solar power generation?

   -How many megawatts of power will the data center consume?

    -How many direct hires is Affordable Solar involving in the construction? How many subcontractors?

    -What happens to these jobs once the solar facilities have been constructed?

    -What kind of maintenance is required for these massive solar installations?

    -What is the economic impact of these solar installations?
