Berkeley County, South Carolina

Google is proud to call South Carolina home to one of our data centers.

In 2007, we announced plans to construct a data center complex in Berkeley County, SC. We announced the expansion of the facility in 2013, bringing our total investment to $1.2 billion and establishing a long-term commitment to the region and state. We've created over 150 jobs on site, and we work hard to support the communities in which our employees live and work.

Since 2009, we've awarded more than $1.9 million to local schools and nonprofits. Additionally, we've helped implement a free downtown WiFi network in Goose Creek. In June 2012, we hosted Googlefest 2012 in Charleston to help nonprofits, small businesses, and educators use the full range of Google tools.

On this site, you can meet some of our employees and see how we're giving back to the community.

Why did Google choose Berkeley County?

Berkeley County has the right combination of energy infrastructure, developable land, and available workforce for the data center.
