Jackson County

In 2018, Google began construction of a $600 million data center complex in Jackson County, Alabama. Google’s Jackson County data center is located on over 500 acres of land, adjacent to the site of the decommissioned Widows Creek coal-fired power plant, once operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Google is partnering with TVA to source renewable power and will utilize the site’s existing electricity transmission lines to enhance the data center’s reliability and bring in clean power.

Google in the Community

Alabama is our home and we’re committed to playing a positive role in the communities in which we live and work. Google has partnered with Alabama A&M University on the Computer Science Summer Institute for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), an effort to promote equitable representation in tech by connecting incoming HBCU students with like-minded peers, Google engineers, computer science professors, HBCU alum in the computer science field, and Black technologists in the local tech ecosystem.
