Meta Establishes Kuna, Idaho, Data Center
The company will break ground on the over 960,000 square-foot facility in September 2022, with construction anticipated to continue through 2025. The data center will be supported by 100% renewable energy.
“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on our newest data center in Kuna, Idaho. Thank you to all of our partners who helped us move this project forward,” said Darcy Nothnagle, director of community and economic development at Meta. “Kuna is a great place to call home and we are committed to investing in the community’s long-term vitality. We look forward to having a strong, fruitful partnership for years to come.”
As part of the company’s commitment to Kuna, Meta is investing approximately $50 million in a new water and sewer system for the city. Infrastructure will be constructed by Meta and dedicated to the City of Kuna to own and operate. The system will provide increased capacity for new users and new businesses in the area.
“We are excited to welcome Meta to Idaho and the Treasure Valley,” said Tom Kealey, Director of Idaho Department of Commerce. “Meta’s large investment in Kuna means great new jobs and innovation opportunities for the city and our state. We look forward to a long, successful relationship with Meta and other stakeholders.”
Idaho has long been viewed as an ideal location for data centers due to the low risk of natural disasters and a stable climate.
