    UT has exempted the Data center from paying utility taxes on the electricity it uses.
    The amount is around $6 million per year. Apparently this was a verbal agreement when they ok'd the site to be built there.
    And while UT and many other States in the west are in a drought, the Data center will use 1.7 million gallons of water per day to cool the computers.
