Meta has announced that it will be expanding its Gallatin data center campus, which is located in Tennessee. The plans for the campus, which will see an injection of $1B, were first announced back in 2020, and the campus will be powered in part by solar energy from a 110MW power purchase agreement (PPA). It is expected to be complete by 2023.

Renderings indicate that the new planned development will be a 4- or H-shape, and according to reports, the building will total 627,000 square feet (58,250 sqm) of data center space, with 45,000 sq ft (4,180 sqm) of office space.

In a statement on Facebook, the company said: “Today, we’re excited to announce that we are expanding Meta’s Gallatin Data Center campus with two new buildings, reaching more than 1.6 million square feet. This expansion brings our investment in Gallatin to nearly $1 billion and will increase our number of skilled trade workers on site at peak to 1700.”
