No to diesel generator backups for Data Centers

The amount of air pollution that will be created by diesel generators for data centers is unacceptable and will lower the quality of life and life expectancy of residents of Prince William and other counties affected.   Why can't this be backed up by Solar Farms and battery storage?  It is much cleaner and such energy could reduce the amount of energy required during the day when highest demand is usually felt.
