Project Dorothy


A 50 megawatt data center in Texas, under construction. This site is connected to a wind farm with loads of excess energy. Here’s Dorothy influence…

The plant owner was...

Not selling all the power the plant generated because the grid was overloaded and demand was low. Not making their expected profit margins by selling too low. Not sending all the power the plant generated because of a congested grid. Not earning all the tax credits that were available.


Bought a majority of their excess energy. Enabled the plant to sell their energy even when there is abundant energy on the grid. Made the grid stable by ramping up-or-down our demand as needed to support the grid.



So then...

Plant owners earned more by selling their power at a higher price to the grid and selling their excess energy. Received all their available tax credits. They were able to meet their debt commitments—on time, over time. And could predict their revenues more accurately & consistently.

What's in a name?

Dorothy Vaughan was an African American mathematician and human computer. She worked for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and NASA back in 1939. Dorothy was relentless and altruistic. And brilliant. She saw problems and worked to solve them using practical, real means. There’s a windfarm in Texas that has some real problems. We’re solving them with the mindset we imagine Dorothy would use.
