Google to Spend 13 Billion for Expansion PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 February 2019 08:57

One year ago Google was in Montgomery County, Tennessee to break ground for a new data center in Clarksville. It was clear from the excitement at the event that the jobs and economic investment meant a great deal to the community. They have seen that same optimism in communities around the country that are helping to power the digital economy. Google’s U.S. footprint is growing rapidly. In the last year, they have hired more than 10,000 people in the U.S. and made over $9 billion in investments. Their expansion across the U.S. has been crucial to finding great new talent, improving the services that people use every day, and investing in their business.

Google is announcing over $13 billion in investments throughout 2019 in data centers and offices across the U.S., with major expansions in 14 states. These new investments will give them the capacity to hire tens of thousands of employees, and enable the creation of more than 10,000 new construction jobs in Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia. With this new investment, Google will now have a home in 24 total states, including data centers in 13 communities. 2019 marks the second year in a row they will be growing faster outside of the Bay Area than in it.

This growth will allow Google to invest in the communities where they operate, while they improve the products and services that help billions of people and businesses globally. Google’s new data center investments, in particular, will enhance their ability to provide reliable services for all their users and customers. As part of their commitment to their 100 percent renewable energy purchasing, Google is also making significant renewable energy investments in the U.S. as they grow. Their data centers make a significant economic contribution to local communities, as do the associated $5 billion in energy investments that their energy purchasing supports.
