We are excited to share the fully solar-powered, open-source Bitcoin mining facility Blockstream and Block, Inc. are collaborating on is set to be outfitted with a 3.8 Megawatt (MW) Tesla Solar PV array and 12 Megawatt-hour (MWh) Megapack. Construction has begun, and we’re eager to demonstrate the innovation we have packed into this unique facility.
The combination of Tesla photovoltaics and Megapack battery equipment will drive the 30 petahashes per second of mining hardware at the facility with 100% solar energy. Blockstream is providing the mining infrastructure and expertise to build and oversee the project, with the Bitcoin mining facility aiming to be completed later this year.
We Know You ❤️ Mining Data
We will provide regular reports on the economics of the project, and a publicly accessible dashboard will display accurate real-time metrics of the facility’s performance, such as power output and bitcoin mined for analysts and enthusiasts to monitor. A later version of the dashboard will also include solar, storage performance data points, and uptime metrics.
The dashboard aims to be available 24/7 from any browser, providing the industry with a real-world, real-time case study of a zero-emission energy Bitcoin mine.
Enterprise-Class Bitcoin Mining Services to Institutions and Investors Around the World
Through our Blockstream Mining partnerships, we are making tremendous strides in showing that Bitcoin mining can fund zero-emission power infrastructure.
We are already working with Aker and Block, Inc. to pursue alternative and renewable energy Bitcoin mining. We also launched Blockstream Energy to go where no mine has gone before, maximizing ROI for energy producers and enabling renewable energy generation facilities to be located in optimal locations.
Non-US individual investors can also get involved in Bitcoin mining through our Blockstream Mining Note (BMN), which provides access to hashpower generated from over 80% zero-emission energy sources, including hydro, solar, wind, and nuclear.
