Facebook to Build New Data Center in Nebraska, Also 100% Powered by Wind Energy

April 4, 2017

Facebook announced plans for a data center in Sarpy County, south of Papillion. Facebook said it expects to hire more than 1,000 construction workers to build the facility, which will employ between 100 and 150 full-time workers. The data center will be 100% powered by wind energy, which largely will be made possible by new wind farms under construction in the state.
