Apparently your power and cooling bills are much lower than ours.

We would very much love it if the computers will use only the
energy they need to get the job done.  Yes, that means a big
bill when some simulation is running on a 100-node beowulf
cluster.  But it also means we don't want to be paying the bill
to run that cluster at full-throttle when there's no work for
those CPU's to do.
