Tennessee Valley Lures Google, Facebook Data Centers With Solar Farms
Tenn – As data centers prioritize cleaner power, major tech firms are landing in what might seem like unlikely locations. Over the past few years, Google and Facebook have nestled into cities in the Tennessee Valley at ideal sites for data center development. In August, Facebook announced plans to build an $800M, 1M SF data center in Gallatin, Tennessee; Google built a $600M data center in nearby Clarksville, which opened late last year, along with another similarly sized data center in Bridgeport, Alabama. Facebook also maintains a data center in Hunstville, Alabama.
