Sabey’s SDC Ashburn Data Center Earns High Score for Energy Efficiency

Building C receives federal EPA ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy efficiency with 95 points out of 100


Ashburn, VA, June 17, 2020 – Sabey Data Centers, one of the largest privately-owned data center owners, operators and developers in the United States, announced today that its SDC Ashburn facility has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2019 Energy Star certification with a score of 95 points out of a possible 100 for the campus’s Building C.

SDC Ashburn is a 38-acre data center campus located in the heart of the nation’s densest connectivity corridor. Two of its three buildings are now completed and leasing colocation and powered shell data center space, offering tenants over 36 MW of power and access to multiple connectivity options.

SDC Ashburn follows in the footsteps of its sister facility SDC Quincy in central Washington State, where that data center campus’ Building A and Building C, recently received Energy Star scores of 99 points and 100 points, respectively.

Rob Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “This latest certification confirms Sabey’s nationwide leadership role in green energy performance, efficient data center design, construction and operation. Also, our customers realize that our commitment to efficiency directly benefits their bottom line, as we pass along the energy savings.”

Energy Star certification signifies that an industrial facility performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. SDC Ashburn’s Energy Star efficiency performance rating of 95 points is just five points short of the highest level of power consumption efficiency, according to Energy Star. In other words, SDC Ashburn’s Building C is more energy efficient than 95 percent of similar properties nationwide.

“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the Energy Star Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s Energy Star certification.”
