California-based Plouton Mining is planning to build North America’s largest solar-powered bitcoin mining farm in Western Mojave. The site will be fitted with 49 acres of solar panels estimated to generate 10-13 megawatts of electricity daily. The remaining electricity is planned to be secured low-cost with local utility providers. This expansion comes amid recent rising profitability for miners in light of recent price increases. It also comes after recent research published estimated the amount of bitcoin mining-powered by renewables to be 74%.
