Is there any information available regarding which major metropolitan area in the US offers the least expensive colocation options in terms of both electricity and physical space costs?


It appears that Las Vegas has relatively low power costs, but there may be limited options for datacenters and transit. Central Washington is likely the cheapest in the country due to its hydropower, but also has limited colocation and transit options.

Some parts of North Carolina are popular due to their low costs. The cost of electrical and cooling infrastructure is a significant portion of colocation expenses, accounting for about one-third of the total cost in Phoenix, AZ.
However, outside of the most expensive cities in the US, such as NYC, LA, and SF, where real estate, labor, and electricity are twice the cost of other cities, the differences in colocation costs between inexpensive cities are relatively small.

The cost of colocation can vary based on various factors such as location, electricity costs, real estate prices, and the specific data center provider. Generally, cities with lower electricity costs and more affordable real estate tend to offer less expensive colocation options.

Some cities that are often considered to have relatively lower costs for colocation services include:

1. Phoenix, Arizona: With abundant sunshine, Phoenix benefits from lower electricity costs compared to other areas in the US. It is home to a number of large data centers.

2. Dallas, Texas: Dallas has a favorable business environment and relatively low electricity costs, attracting data center providers and offering competitive prices for colocation services.

3. Atlanta, Georgia: Atlanta offers a combination of lower real estate costs and lower electricity costs, making it an attractive location for colocation facilities.
