Mawson to deliver up to 100MW of energy resources to the PJM Interconnection electricity grid in 2022.
Sydney, Australia and New York City, USA — February 2nd, 2022 — Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MIGI) (“Mawson”), a digital infrastructure provider, is pleased to announce it has partnered with Voltus, the leading distributed energy resource (DER) software technology platform, to deliver up to 100MW of energy resources to the PJM Interconnection (“PJM”) electricity grid in 2022.
Mawson is building a new 100MW Bitcoin mining facility on the grounds of a former industrial site in Midland, Pennsylvania with the intention of bringing 50MW of load online by March 2022 and an additional 50MW by June 2022. This capacity is expected to be available to PJM’s grid operators as a grid balancing resource 24/7/365 through the Voltus marketplace software platform.
In addition, Mawson has executed a 5 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Energy Harbor for 100% carbon-free energy at the Midland, Pennsylvania facility.
Liam Wilson, COO of Mawson, said, “At Mawson we are building energy-efficient, next-generation digital infrastructure. Incorporating best practice distributed energy resource program participation through the Voltus software platform into our Midland, Pennsylvania development plans is another opportunity for Mawson to be a good steward for the community and electricity grid that is supporting us. We are also pleased to have contracted 100% carbon-free energy via a 5 year PPA with Energy Harbor at our newest facility.”
Gregg Dixon, CEO and Co-founder of Voltus, said, “Cryptomining load is expected to reach nearly 10,000 MWs in the US over the next five years. Voltus can control these loads in a fully automated fashion, connecting this capacity to power markets that value them, resulting in cash back to miners, reliable resources for grid operators, and a balancing resource to improve the reliability of much-needed renewable energy. Digital infrastructure leaders like Mawson recognize that partnering with Voltus supports the grid and provides a competitive advantage in the power-cost driven world of cryptomining.”
