Data centers in the northwest for Google, Facebook and eventually Apple will draw a tremendous amount of power; 355 megawatts a year, or enough to power a city the size of Gresham.  John Harrison with the Northwest Power and Conservation Council says those server farms will grow over the next 20 years.


“They'll have plenty of power to meet the demand, but it's important to include it the long term plans for the northwest.”  It's about two-thirds the amount of power consumed by aluminum smelters when they were at their peak in the 1980s.
