Frederick County’s data center work group on Wednesday heard that powering Quantum Loophole’s campus might affect providing power to other areas and affect ratepayers’ transmission charges. The work group, created by Frederick County Executive Jessica Fitzwater, will prepare a report with recommendations for the County Council regarding regulation of the critical digital infrastructure industry. Quantum Loophole purchased the former site of the Alcoa Eastalco aluminum smelting plant near Adamstown in 2021 to build a campus of data centers.
