Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is planning to build a $600M data center in Minnesota that would be powered by two Xcel Energy (NYSE:XEL) wind farms, according to a filing with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.

Under the proposed agreement, XEL would sell Google the land for the data center and supply electricity service for the facility’s big power needs.

The site is near two XEL coal plants, but the company plans to retire those soon and instead provide 300 MW of wind-generated energy.
