Google has clicked on our state as the home for its $600 million dollar data center.
The center is planned for the Caldwell County City of Lenoir, which is about 60 miles northwest of Charlotte.
Lenoir has a population of about 60,000.
The Google center will eventually employ about 210 people in a region hit hard by layoffs in the furniture and textile industries.
The average annual salary at the data center is expected to be more than $48,000, about $20,000 more than the average salary in Caldwell County.
North Carolina will give the company almost $5 million dollars as part of a total incentives package that could reach more than $100 million dollars.
