With this project, the social media giant aims to create one of the most energy and water-efficient data centre facilities in the world.
It says the 907,000 square-foot data centre, Facebook’s 12th in the US and first in Illinois, will use 80% less water than an average data centre and once completed, will be LEED Gold certified - the Facebook site will have five buildings and two will be completed by 2022.
