Google is investing another $200 million in its Council Bluffs data center operations as it invests $75 million in a wind farm in central Iowa.

Google announced the additional investment in the data center on Friday at a Statehouse news conference.

The Mountain View-Calif.-based tech giant has an existing $600 million data center it announced in 2007. In April, Google said it would build a $300 million data center near the existing campus. Friday's announcement would add $200 million to that new site.

Google said Thursday it was investing $75 million in the Rippey Wind Farm in Greene County as part of its effort to encourage development of cleaner energy sources.

Google's investment in Iowa now stands at $1.1 billion.
