The state of Nevada approved an application by Google for a $600 million data center in Clark County.
The new data center will be located in Henderson, Nevada, and is projected to create 50 jobs within five years. The average wage for the data center is estimated to be $31.25 per hour.
As part of a tax abatement agreement worth $25.2 million, Google will run the data center and employ its workers while Design LLC — a wholly owned subsidiary by Google — will own the property. The project will receive a 2 percent sales and use tax abatement over 20 years worth $18.75 million and a 75 percent property tax abatement over 20 years worth nearly $6.5 million from the state.
The Google application was one of 10 that were approved by the state this week. Other approvals by the state include applications by lead refiner Aqua Metals in Storey County, manufacturer Berkley International and specialty refiner Redwood Material in Carson City, and bicycle company FOX Factory and software-as-a-service business rfXcel in Washoe County.
