New Bitcoin Mining Facility to be Built Near Nuclear Power Plant in Salem Township Pennsylvania

According to Talen Energy, “the project will yield approximately 1,000 construction jobs, employ approximately 50 people per building once complete and also offer economic benefits in the form of tax revenue, infrastructure upgrades and use of local goods and services.”

Phase 1 includes a 180-megawatt Bitcoin mining facility and data centers powered directly by Susquehanna two nuclear units.

“Amazon, Google, all those cloud computing applications… Those are the potential clients, customers that we will have in the data center buildings. On the coin mining side, there will be computers again located in those buildings and those computers will run computations that will trigger and generate the issuance of coins,” explained Dustin Wertheimer, VP and Division CFO Talen Cumulus and Susquehanna Data Center.
