California-based mining company Plouton Mining will build North America's largest solar-powered bitcoin mining farm, the company confirmed in a press release on June 25. Plouton, which is a subsidiary of Plouton Group Holding, says the site in Western Mojave will feature around 49 acres of solar panels generating 10-13 megawatts of electricity daily. "The preeminent combination of nature and technology will usher in the next stage of bitcoin mining evolution, fulfilling the promise of Bitcoin as a sustainable, decentralized network of transactions," Ramak J.
Sedigh, the operation's CEO, commented in the press release. "We are very pleased to offer people the opportunity to participate in the growing Bitcoin blockchain economy without having to purchase the mining equipment themselves." As Cointelegraph reported, the uptick in bitcoin price has led to a resurgence in both mining profitability and decentralization as smaller participants gain easier access to the market. Canada's Hut 8, one of the world's largest publicly-traded cryptocurrency mining companies, in May reported 2018 losses of $140 million.
Long subject to claims it is environmentally damaging, bitcoin mining has meanwhile received better publicity in recent times after a study revealed more than 70% of activity already utilizes renewable energy.
