The hydropower plant serves as the sole power source for our Data Center Light. Few meters away from where our servers are running, the hydropower plant is generating electricity in the basement.
The Linth river has been the lifeline for the whole region Glarus forever. For drinking, farming, and now generating electricity. As the name suggests Linth rises near Linthal in the mountains of the Alps - where our datacenter is located at.
