Google is working with the Tennessee Valley Authority to convert a coal-fired power plant into a renewable energy data center in Alabama.
The coal-fired power plant is closing in October and Google will be building a $600 million server farm on 350 acres of land that is planned to be powered by 100% renewable energy. Google will tap into the transformers, power lines, and other equipment for their clean energy.
The site was chosen due to its proximity to the river - to cool the servers - and its location near a NASA research center (talented local work force).
Construction on the data center is set for 2016.
