         Much of the energy consumed by data centers is needed to cool the buildings to keep the
         equipment from overheating. Backers of the Netricity project say the North Slope's cold
         temperatures and dry air make it a perfect environment for a server farm and its isolation provides
         security. 
              Heat from the servers, together with waste heat from the power plant, could be used to warm the
         building. Any cost of heating would be minimal compared to cooling in the south, Dodson said.
