STC is served by KCP&L with two diverse substations and 161 kVA transmission lines on the property.
One of the most important advantages Kansas City offers is its inherent protection against energy black-outs. Kansas City consistently ranks among the best for constant, uninterrupted service. The Kansas City region boasts one of the most robust energy delivery networks in the world. Transmission systems are designed so the loss of any particular generator or transmission line has no effect on supplies across the region.
KCP&L offers a five-year decreasing discount equivalent to one year of free electricity. KCP&L also offers one of the lowest utility costs in the country (approximately .05¢ per kWh), significantly decreasing operating expenses.
“Kansas City is a strategic market for our local cloud, colocation and data center infrastructure. As we looked to expand into the Kansas City area, the unique attributes of the Hunt Midwest partnership and the unique STC underground facility made our decision to locate here an easy one.”
“SubTropolis Technology Center and LightEdge are creating a best-in-class data center infrastructure that will offer a great combination of redundancy and capacity.”
“Veeam, It just works. Just like LightEdge. We couldn’t be happier with their solution and support.”
“The relationship between LightEdge and Hunt Midwest translates into the convergence of financial strength, best-in-class hosted IT services, experience with hybrid cloud environments, a highly secure and protected location and low kilowatt (kW) power costs compared to other areas of the U.S.”
“We are very excited about partnering with Hunt Midwest. The nearly unlimited bandwidth provided by fiber-optic facilities allows our services to easily and quickly expand as the needs of customers grow over time. Most of our customers like to future-proof their communications with flexible solutions to meet their ever-growing bandwidth requirements.”
“The robust electric transmission and distribution network – with multiple substations in the area and proximity to our generating station – is expandable to support future growth and power demands required by the tech industry. Plus, electric rates are among the lowest in the country.”
“The robust electric transmission and distribution network – with multiple substations in the area and proximity to our generating station – directly supports the needs of the technology industry. In other words, LightEdge’s innovative data center facility at SubTropolis Technology Center makes perfect sense.”
“The stability and flexibility that we have achieved by moving to LightEdge has freed capital and resources allowing us to stay ahead of technology changes, patient needs and our competition.”
