Google also said it would invest $600 million to build a data centre at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center in northern Nevada, bringing its total investment in the state to $1.8 billion, said Gov. Steve Sisolak. To date, the company has invested $300 million in the Reno facility.

Sisolak and seven members of the state Office of Economic Development board approved more than $25 million in tax breaks for the construction of the company's Henderson data centre. The facility is expected to open in 2021, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

"This is a very good deal for Nevada," said Michael Brown, the director of the development board. "In return for the $25 million abatement that Google will receive, the company will make a $427 million impact on the economy over 20 years and generate $94 million in tax revenue over 20 years."
