Standard Power is to provide 40 MW of generating power for equipment needed for a blockchain mining centre, with further capacity of 10 MW for a data centre.
Power is to be supplied starting in December 2021.
“Bitcoin blockchain mining centers are energy-intensive, and we recognise our responsibility to build a more environmentally sustainable future,” said Maxim Serezhin, Standard Power CEO.
“We selected Ohio because of its low electricity costs. By partnering with Energy Harbor, we have proactively structured our hosting capabilities to ensure that 100 percent of the power associated with this facility is carbon-free.”
