DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 30, 2021-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR) (the “Company”), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-uptime data center campuses with high-performance cloud and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced its VA3 data center is powered by 100% renewable energy through Dominion Energy’s 100% Renewable Energy ProgramSM. CoreSite’s VA3 data center is its newest purpose-built, enterprise class facility on its Northern Virginia campus, and together with VA1 and VA2 currently comprise our Reston data center campus.

Providing Customers with the Ability to Support Local Renewable Energy Sources

The new voluntary energy program enables CoreSite to provide customers with the ability to support continued development of local renewable energy sources and ensure a diverse fuel mix in the Northern Virginia market. The portfolio for Dominion Energy’s 100% Renewable Energy ProgramSM currently includes locally sourced solar, hydroelectric, and biomass energy. All of CoreSite’s new and existing customers deployed at its VA3 data center can claim 100% renewable power.

CoreSite is committed to seeking out the least carbon-intensive energy sources wherever feasible, which in turn supports its customers’ economic goals,” said Paul Szurek, CoreSite’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to support the development of local renewable energy sources in the Northern Virginia market and to take this additional step in CoreSite’s sustainability journey by achieving 100% renewable power at our VA3 data center.”

CoreSite’s Northern Virginia data center campus, comprised of three operating data centers (VA1, VA2, and VA3) and scalable to provide over 100 megawatts of capacity at full buildout, provides direct, low-latency access to all major cloud service providers, which are natively deployed within its Reston data center campus. The interconnected campus provides access to the cloud, network, and managed service providers needed to build and deploy a holistic hybrid and multi-cloud solution in a secure, dense, and scalable environment. Enterprises and government agencies, including those system integrators that support the government agencies, also often rely on their strategic vendors, such as CoreSite, to address their sustainability and renewable energy goals.
