Basically my idea is to setup a green self sustaining data center. My hang
up is finding investors. Where I am electricity is super expensive and the
costs are passed onto the clients hosting with the current Local data
centers.

Would be great if there were some investors on this list, but I think this
is only going to remain an idea Which i hope i can turn into reality with a
miracle.
