Chicago offers power cost, tax incentives, renewable energy, network connectivity, and the ease of doing business.

Illinois offers qualifying data centers and their tenants' exemption on state and local sales tax. The exemption lasts for 20 years and applies to data center and IT equipment purchases. When we look at the impact of tax incentives expressed as data center deployment savings, Chicago is the top market. That’s because the current sales tax rate in Chicago is relatively high—10.25%—so exemption from that added cost ends up being significant (about 27%, expressed as data center deployment savings).
