Data centers target eastern Connecticut for development
20 Sep 2021
Data centers could soon be coming to Groton, Bozrah and Griswold.
Montville and Norwich, also candidates for data centers, are a bit further away from putting in such facilities.
During this past legislative session, lawmakers passed a measure erasing the property and sales tax burden on data center developers for 20-30 years, depending on the size of the developer's investment. The move is important to eastern Connecticut, a potential landing spot for such facilities, which can help grow a town’s grand list.
A qualified data center is defined as a facility that houses networked computer servers in one location, centralizing the storage and dissemination of data.
