Why Chicago is Perfect for Data Centers

The first reason is the fact that Chicago is not in a location prone to major natural disasters. It is not near any fault lines or volcanoes, in the path of hurricanes or wildfires, and no major tornado has touched down anywhere in the city for over 50 years. Even though the city is along Lake Michigan, the water levels have been lowering and there is no substantial flooding risk in the downtown areas either. While there can be snowstorms, the area is prepared for the ice and snow with an underground power infrastructure and proper planning. The risk of natural disaster is much lower in Chicago than the vast majority of the country and is one of the top cities in the US for resiliane to climate change.
