Apple will invest a lot of money for its latest “green” enterprise. Associated Press confirmed last weekend that Apple’s forthcoming data center in Oregon will require a massive chunk of money in Apple’s wallet.
According to details that have come to light, Apple will invest $250 million for the facility to be located on 160 acres of Apple-controlled land. Apple has also agreed to pay local governments $150,000 a year in return for a 15-year property tax exemption for the data center.
As part of the company’s agreement with Prineville and Crook County, Apple has pledged to create some pretty cushy jobs in the community – at least 35 jobs with wages “150 percent of the county’s average wage.”
Last year, Facebook opened a data center in the general proximity of the Apple site. Amazon and Google also operate facilities in the area. In other words, Oregon is becoming a heaven for tech giants.
