Apple wants to spend $50.7 million to expand (again) its Nevada data center

You may remember the data center Apple has in Reno, Nevada . We first heard about it in mid-2012 and it was expanded twice (the last time at the end of 2015) in order to cope with all the data traffic that we users generate. Well, nothing, it has to be extended again.

BuildZoom, a website specializing in the search for building permits in the United States and in renovations, has been able to “catch on the fly” a permit granted to Apple for this new extension worth approximately $50.7 million . There will be eight more buildings added to the complex, which will involve almost 3.5 hectares of new surface area.

This extension has been named “Project Isabel” , and AppleInsider comments that last year there was another extension with the code name Huckleberry. To put the icing on the cake, Apple wants to build a solar panel farm that would produce 200 megawatts of power. And all this about a 15-minute drive from downtown Reno, Nevada.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Apple’s data center expansions, and suddenly this is good news. It means more and more people are using the iCloud, Apple Music subscriptions, or App Store apps. Which in turn translates into more revenue for the company .
