Diesel generators pollute the air, make a terrible noise, and are dangerous to our health.

I have one small data center  very near my house. The noise from the generators when they run is terrible. Not to mention the diesel we breathe!

Do not give a variance to the data centers for diesel generators. Why does big business get to change the rules whenever they don’t like them? Why would you even consider letting them. If they can’t get enough power then they’ll have to wait till they can. It’s horrific that they are being built in our backyards and now diesel generators are going to be running all the time in the warmer months? It should not even be a consideration!
