PDG focuses on hyperscaling, efficiency, and sustainability for its data center operations. For new capacity, PDG adopts a “green-first” approach, by identifying locations with clean energy solutions to anchor large-scale data center campuses. The Design Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of all greenfield data centers is targeted to be between 1.2 – 1.4.2
