The geographical location of the I-79 Technology Park is only one component that makes it a prime operational site. Infrastructure enhancements have taken the I-79 Technology Park to truly world-class levels. In 2011 and 2012, tens of millions of dollars were spent to expand both the electrical and telecommunications systems in the park.
In collaboration with MonPower, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corporation, a brand new state-of-the-art expandable 14-MW electrical substation was constructed to support the power needs of the I-79 Technology Park. This capability is further enhanced by the presence of the state-of-the-art MonPower headquarters and operations center constructed by FirstEnergy in the I-79 Technology Park.
