data centerLoudoun County, Va. has become one of the country's prime locations for data centers, with 5 million square feet of space dedicated to the industry, the Washington Post reported Monday.

Jonathan O'Connell writes this figure is projected to grow by an additional 3 million square feet  for development comparable to Silicon Valley, Dallas and New York.

Buddy Rizer, acting director for the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, told the Post the data centers produce $5.5 million in tax revenue per year.

Lawmakers are considering a zoning ordinance that would include safeguards against noise pollution from the generators needed to run the massive silos, O’Connell reports.
