No to diesel!!!

It is so unfortunate that LoCo has approved these data centers when clearly the infrastructure is not there to support them.  I have always felt these centers should make accommodations to offset their environmental impact.  Solar panels on the enormous flat roofs should be mandated and those in combination with battery storage would go a long way to mitigate the situation they now find themselves in.  We should be aggressively advocating for and making changes to ensure clean air, not contribute to the pollution.  No diesel, mandate solar and halt the building of structures we cannot support.
