I oppose allowing data centers to have a variance for their diesel generators

I oppose DEQ’s proposed variance to allow data center diesel generators to operate continuously during periods of peak electrical load.  Let the data centers develop a plan for selective service reductions to address the problem THEY are causing.

The DEQ’s mission is to protect and enhance the environment of Virginia to promote the health and well-being of the Commonwealth’s citizens, residents, and visitors in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
