Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(sophiereyer1@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

My best regards.

My firm, T5 Partners, LLC is developing two data center shells outside of Charlotte NC - thought I'd make you aware of this as an opportunity for some of your clients/prospects to relocate to these sites. We build the shells in strategic locations meeting data center users' criteria for the site selection and then sell or lease the facilities to the end-user. This allows the end-user to design the interior according to his exact specs on density, redundancy, etc with complete control - we are not a colo operator.
Our sites re in the Duke Energy footprint with costs or $0.0392/kwh and generation that is 50% nuclear for reduced carbon emissions. We have completed the due diligence on these sites and are happy to share with you or your team including: robust/diverse power, multiple fiber solutions, reduced taxes, incentives, dual water sources, etc.
We can arrange financing of the entire build as well for certain credit users. If you're interested in receiving more info on our two properties, please email me directly at jchartrand@ t5-mcf.com or call 404.993.5996.
