$1.2 billion data center could come to Iowa

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A new $1.2 billion data center could start going up in Iowa by summer.

The director of the State Partnership for Economic Progress said she can't name the company because of a confidentiality agreement, but it's not Google, Microsoft or IBM.

The company is considering two locations in Iowa, and one in Nebraska.

Iowa may have the edge - a law already in place includes a potential sales tax break on electricity used at the operation.

Nebraska is considering similar legislation.
