Title: Data Centers Hiding In 'Spy Country' Northern Virginia Will Need Reactor's Worth Of Power

Since the beginning of the digital age, most of the world's internet data has flowed through massive data centers in Northern Virginia. The area is known as "Data Center Alley" because it's home to the world's largest concentration of data centers. Some call the area 'spy country' because of the number of data centers used by the Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies.

Given the exponential proliferation of smartphones, streaming services, smart devices, and now generative artificial intelligence, the power demanded by data centers in Northern Virginia will need nuclear reactors worth of power, if not much more, according to utility Dominion Energy.

On Thursday, Chief Executive Officer Bob Blue told investors on a company earnings call that "economic growth, electrification, and accelerating data center expansion" is boosting power demand across the area.

Blue said, "The data center industry has grown substantially in northern Virginia in recent years," noting, "We've connected 94 data centers with over 4 gigawatts of capacity over the last approximately five years."

Blue expects his utility company to connect another 15 data centers to the local power grid this year.

He said, "This growth has accelerated in orders of magnitude, driven by one, the number of data centers requesting to be connected to our system, two, the size of each facility, and three, the acceleration of each facility's ramp scheduled to reach full capacity."

He provided some context about rising power demand, pointing out:

"A single data center typically had a demand of 30 megawatts or greater. However, we're now receiving individual requests for demand of 60 to 90 megawatts or greater, and it hasn't stopped there. We get regular requests to support larger data center campuses that include multiple buildings and require total capacity ranging from 300 megawatts to as many as several gigawatts."

Blue told analysts that Loudoun County is home to the "largest data center market in the world, and we have had an opportunity to work with our data center customers for 15 or more years."

He said the electrification of the economy, in combination with data centers, will only mean "substantial load growth driven by electrification in data centers for the foreseeable future."

With substantial load growth coming down the pipe, the local media outlet The Frederick News-Post reported earlier this year that billions of dollars in "regional power grid upgrades" are being proposed to "increase data center power demands in Northern Virginia."

Recently, media outlet LoudounNow reported that "hunger for energy continues to grow, especially in the data center industry with new large-scale projects adding hundreds of megawatts of demand." The paper said that this has led government officials to propose "small modular reactors."

Putting this all together plays into our latest investing theme, 'powering up America' and the upgrade of the nation's grid for AI data centers, electrification of the economy, and reshoring of manufacturing. We titled the notes "The Next AI Trade" and "Everyone Is Piling Into The Next AI Trade." Nuclear will be a big part of power generation as it's the only clean and reliable source for data centers, as Blackrock's Larry Fink pointed out last week.

When Civil War 2 starts, the first thing that should be done is to blow up the electrical power lines going into DC, Baltimore, NYC and Boston.

They're going to strike first, likely with a currency collapse, starvation due to their attacks on the food supplies, commercial and private both.

Our goose as a country is cooked.

The only question that remains is when the serious death and dying begins.

People with food, lead, gold and silver can barter to survive. All they have to do is cut the electricity to the Northeast.

Food will be the primary bargaining chip. It will ultimately be a struggle for survival in the most literal definition. People can't eat gold, lead, or silver, and wealth in it's forms will only be in the minds of the most foolish.

The Luciferians will have food to buy the services of others to kill a majority. Much like cops and militarized entities kill people largely without reason now.

Let's not forget that doctors and nurses killed terms of thousands for a little bit of money not long ago. It won't take much.

What were about to experience, no one alive in our country has ever experienced here.

What almost no one realizes is that a system of currency/wealth has terminally proliferated to the extent that it's, well, too big to fail.

And by that it means not to big to not allow to fail, but so big that it can no longer fail. It's has consumed everything.

What almost no one realizes is that their ultimate goal is to eradicate anything and everything that has to do with Christ and Christianity in it's purest, not it's most organized or formal forms, which includes anything moral.

7.1 million Americans own 40 or more guns and 100,000 or more bullets. The first reaction to the crash of the dollar will be Nationwide Food Riots. This will destabilize all major cities making control of us impossible, especially if the power lines taking electricity to DC, Baltimore and NYC are cut.

What you say is true piggy.

To bad you blindly are against Israel.

I expect piggy to take the mark. Hopefully not though piggy. I'll pray for you as you do have a little bit of sense.

There won't be a federal government 30 days after the Nationwide Food Riots, the Death of the Dollar and the power lines to DC, Baltimore and NYC are cut.

IDK, I'm thinking that there will be enough to pay people to kill others and food stocks to pay them with.

How will the Government function without money? There are 51 million illegal aliens in America. In 2025 wages will be cut 60% because the Dollar will die. And all those benefits will be taken away from the illegals and the Blacks.

Same way out did in East Germany, by giving those that help it a few more Perks.

We must realize that our economy has been a charade for decades. When TSHTF it'll be slave (literally) conditions. Wanna eat, kill people.

Look at what people did during PSYOP19 for money, either simply their "jobs," which was too kill their fellow citizens, or literally for money.

How many historical examples are there of people killing others to save themselves. History is replete with them.

Most people don't realize how bad it's actually going to get. The "shock and awe" is going to be unimaginable.

Government will not vanish entirely, only as we know it.

There resources "stashed away," you know that. Those will be used to buy the services of desperate people.

I would never, I'd rather die as my treasures are not stored up in this world, but many many will just as they are doing now in one or more forms.
