"Everything. I like Google".

Google's newest data center is being constructed on a property of over 500 acres adjacent to the site of the decommissioned Widows Creek coal-fired power plant once operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

Since it is not yet possible to power a company the size of Google entirely by renewable energy, the search giant has made a decision to "match" its energy usage by purchasing renewable energy from local wind and solar farms.

Google's data centers are industry leaders in energy efficiency, thanks to innovations that allow the company's facilities to derive 3.5 times more computing power from the same amount of energy needed a few years ago. The Alabama facility will become its 14th data center globally and the eighth in the U.S.

"We're trying to get people".

"No doubt about it - this a game-changer for us". They want Jackson County students to stay right here and work for them at this new data center.

"Google is a company that has an worldwide reputation for excellence. Hopefully, it will help with jobs", said Jackson County Schools Superintendent Kevin Dukes. "The Google footprint, initially at $600 million, is an incredible commitment to establishing and expanding the company's Internet capabilities".

Sealing victory at the Masters has been McIlroy's main priority after four consecutive top-10 finishes at Augusta National. According to the Masters' website , golf legend Tiger Woods will be back on the course for a tee time of 11:10 a.m.


"As demand increases and we build more capacity, we start with one building and who knows where we end up", said Brenda Standridge, Google site manager.

Google was attracted to the site on the Tennessee River because of the availability of land, water, labor and clean renewable energy. In addition, both state and local officials worked very hard to forge a partnership with the company and advance the data center project.

Google officials told us most the work done at the data center here will serve the southeast region of the united states. We need to put trailer parks put up for the construction workers like that. Schools $100,000 to boost their stem programs.

Repurposing the Widows Creek site and committing to match 100 percent of its electricity consumption at the Alabama data center with renewable energy purchases reflects Google's longtime leadership on renewable energy.

"Having Google in our area will usher in a new era for our community", Hughes said.

The data center will utilize the old Widows Creek power plant to help power the new center.
