Google considers building $600M data center in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — 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. Xcel says the project would help the utility and the area transition from its reliance on the Sherco plant, the state's largest coal-fired power plant.
