The Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRIC), about 20 miles east of Reno, is not only home to wild horses, large-scale distribution centers and Tesla’s gigafactory but also now to Google.
Google just purchased 1,210 acres of land in TRIC. They have not announced their development plans, but their filing with the Nevada Public Utilities Commission indicates robust power needs. Maybe a data center? Maybe a collaboration with nearby Tesla on self-driving technology? Google is being mum about their plans, so we will have to wait and see. Stay tuned.
