Talen asks US regulators to reject challenge to Amazon data center deal

) data center deal, which is being opposed by a group of electric utilities that say the agreement could raise power bills for the general public, according to a filing on Friday.), was inaccurate and that its interconnection agreement for the Amazon data center site would not cause grid reliability problems or spiking power costs for the utility customers.

Technology companies are in a race to access massive amounts of electricity supplies to power and cool the data centers, or giant computer warehouses, needed to roll out technologies like generative AI. Nuclear energy, which is virtually carbon free and provides around-the-clock power, has become a top pick for the data center industry.

A handful of electric utilities, including American Electric Power and Exelon, last month asked FERC to hold a hearing to more deeply scrutinize Talen's interconnection agreement with Amazon or deny it outright. The group said the interconnection agreement for the data center could result in a $140 million per year cost shift to everyday ratepayers.
