The center, located about 30 miles from Nashville, will house various types of workers, including technical operations, electricians, logistics staff and security.

The announcement follows three years of recruitment by state and local economic development officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority.

Facebook will join Beretta USA, Gap and SERVPRO at the Gallatin Industrial Park.

Facebook has already reached a deal with TVA to bring 220 megawatts of new solar energy to the Tennessee Valley.

The new data center will be supported by 100% sourced renewable energy. It also is expected to use 80% less water than the average data center.
