A new-to-market data center company is looking to bring a zero-water, zero-carbon footprint data center near the Loop 202 freeway and Warner Road in southeast Mesa.

Darien, Connecticut-based Edged Energy filed applications with Mesa’s design review board and planning and zoning board to bring a 126,000-square-foot building on a 14-acre site. The plans call for a new data center with office space and equipment yards.

The site is located just to the west of Scannell Properties’ ongoing industrial park in the area.

The project will also call for improvements such as driveway extensions, parking, fire and water lines and a new substation. Construction of a new substation would be coordinated with Salt River Project. In its project application, Edged said it implements “sustainable data infrastructure platforms operating with zero water and zero carbon footprint.”
