In March, the Hickory Daily Record noted that Apple had filed for building permits related to a “tactical data center” to be located at the site of the company’s existing data center in Maiden, North Carolina. There were indications that the facility was a relatively small building of roughly 20,000 square feet.
According to postings from city and county officials uncovered by the Reno Gazette Journal, Apple is planning to invest $1 billion over the next ten years into a Reno, Nevada project.
Last week, the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) approved Apple’s proposal to build a 20-megawatt solar farm.
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.
After confirming data center, Apple has posted a job post on its website, describing a data center it is developing in Oregon as a “next generation” facility. Apple is seeking to hire a Data Center Construction Project Manager to manage the project.
This past Tuesday on 21 February 2012, Apple confirmed its plans to build a massive data center in Prineville Oregon, confirming the rumors that emerged late last year.
