MINNEAPOLIS | Google considers building $600M data center in Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS —January 11, 2019—Google is looking into building a $600 million data center in central Minnesota that would be powered by two wind farms.
Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy disclosed the data center project Thursday in a regulatory filing. The Google facility proposed in Becker would mark one of the largest private construction projects in recent state history and create about 50 full-time tech jobs.
Becker Mayor Tracy Bertram says the city is among several sites under consideration.
