The 21st century technology boom continues as Microsoft just announced plans to expand its operations in the valley.

The tech giant will construct three data center campuses, two in Goodyear and one in El Mirage, to meet the growing demand for cloud and internet services in the Western U.S.

Microsoft says the development will be powered through 100% renewable energy, with Tempe-based company First Solar set to create the solar components for the centers.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was in attendance at Tuesday’s news conference on the dynamic data facilities, which will create more than 100 jobs for data technicians, mechanical and electrical engineers and more. Ducey also said the projects will create about 1,000 temporary jobs in construction with a $20 million economic impact once complete.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
