Apple has reached a deal with Prineville and Crook County, Oregon to move ahead with its new data center there. According to the Associated Press, Apple has agreed to pay local governments $150,000 a year and will get a 15-year property tax exemption for the new data center. In addition, Apple has also committed to a minimum of 35 jobs at the data center, wages that are at least 150 percent of the county’s average wage, and an investment of at least $250 million across its 160 acres of land.
