Yahoo Inc. has opened a new data center in upstate New York which promises to be one of the most energy efficient of its kind.

Yahoo chief executive Carol Bartz and New York Gov. David Paterson were on hand for the opening Monday afternoon.

The green technology used at the center in Lockport, Niagara County, earned a $9.9 million sustainability grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The center, located 20 miles northeast of Buffalo, immediately creates more than 100 jobs, with the potential for more later on.

Based in Sunnyvale, Calif., Internet pioneer Yahoo has been expanding its number of data centers around the country.
