SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (the "Company" or "CleanSpark"), a clean Bitcoin mining and diversified software and services company, today announced that it has closed on its acquisition of an additional nearly 87,000 square foot data center in Norcross, Georgia, to substantially increase the Company's Bitcoin mining operation.
The $6.55M purchase of the former Sprint/Nextel data center situated on over 7 acres in Norcross, Georgia closed on August 6, 2021. The facility, located 33 miles from the current ATLData Center and CleanBlok operations in Atlanta, will provide 20 MW of additional power to CleanSpark's mining business with the opportunity for significant expansion. The Company expects to complete the installation of the mining infrastructure and have the miners running by late 2021.
The new facility's mining operations are expected to operate at 100% net carbon-neutral, achieved through its participation in Georgia's Simple Solar program. The program allows CleanSpark to offset any carbon-based energy included in the regional energy mix with solar power. The Company also anticipates adding onsite renewables, including rooftop and ground mount solar and other microgrid energy solutions.
CleanSpark President and CEO Zach Bradford said, "This facility, with its 20 MW of power, will allow us to put over 6,000 additional S19s into operation. It is expected to produce over 650 PH/s upon installation. Based on current difficulty rates, this processing power would result in an additional 5 to 6 bitcoins per day. This, along with our other initiatives, is expected to result in 2.0 EH/s by the end of 2021, which, at current difficulty rates would result in 17 to 18 bitcoin per day."
Bradford continued, "We have been working on a number of opportunities to increase our Bitcoin production capabilities, including energy expansion in Atlanta, our partnership with Coinmint, and now the purchase of this facility to increase the total energy capacity in our portfolio. We have over 23,500 S19 ASICS miners that will be delivered over the coming year—planning for responsible energy expansion has been paramount. Our focus on ESG has been at the forefront of all our efforts and we expect to lead sustainable practices in the industry. CleanSpark now directly owns and operates facilities that will bring a combined 70MW of 95%-plus carbon-free energy capacity, with the ability to further expand."
