Cheyenne data center to grow
Feb 21, 2013 - The Associated Press
CHEYENNE -- Microsoft already is looking to expand a data center it is building on the outskirts of Cheyenne.
The software giant announced the data center less than a year ago. Now the company is considering a more than $66 million addition to the $92 million project.
The Laramie County Commission on Tuesday voted to apply for a state grant to subsidize the project. The $2.3 million grant for Microsoft would come from the Wyoming Business Council.
The state already has approved two grants for the data center. The grants total as much as $10 million. The latest grant would help to offset to data center's utility costs.
