The TVA’s Widows Creek power plant near Stevenson is shutting down soon, and it’s already found a new tenant.
Google plans to build a $600 million data center at the site with construction beginning next year.
The data center will be Google’s seventh in the U.S. and fourteenth worldwide. They expect to add 75 to 100 high-paying jobs to the north Alabama region once the new data center is operational. The facility is expected to support general Internet traffic as well as the many user services that Google offers.
