Apple will invest $2 billion to build up a data centre in Mesa, Arizona, the company announced Monday.
The new facility—which will serve as a command center for the company’s global networks—is expected to employ 150 full-time Apple employees and will hire 300 to 500 construction and trade jobs, according to a news release from Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey. The tech giant said it would be one of the largest investments it has ever made.
Apple has pledged to completely power the facility with renewable energy, building out solar projects in the process.
