The data center will eventually employ as many as 100 people including software technicians and system administrators.

The data center will be built on 350 acres of land off County Road 96 in Bridgeport.

About 100 highly skilled technical workers will be hired to work at the site. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey said. "We're proud that Alabama is playing an important role in Google's future growth, and we look forward to seeing this data center operation help power that growth".

"Everything. I like Google".

Google is building its Bridgeport facility - and another similar data center on another former TVA site in Clarksville, Tenn. - to help meet growing demand in the Southeast for cloud-based services, searches and video streaming.

Crews have already begun construction, and Bridgeport Mayor David Hughes says the town is already seeing an economic boom. This arrangement, and others like it throughout the country, help companies and utilities meet their renewable energy goals.

"No doubt about it - this a game-changer for us". The company has now filed an appeal with the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), reports Reuters. "The Google footprint, initially at $600 million, is an incredible commitment to establishing and expanding the company's Internet capabilities. We're so glad that when Google chose to search for a place to put a data center that they found Alabama". In addition, both state and local officials worked very hard to forge a partnership with the company and advance the data center project.

"Having Google in our area will usher in a new era for our community", Hughes said.
