Nuclear-Powered Crypto Plant Planned for PA Next Year. What Could Go Wrong?


Cryptocurrency mining is going nuclear in the home of America’s first capital. Data Center Dynamics today reported that Talen Energy plans to establish a nuclear-powered mining operation and data center that will have up to 300MW of on-site power when it’s finished, sometime after 2Q 2022.

The mining operation and data center will be built next to the company’s Susquehanna Steam Electric Station in Pennsylvania, according to the report, and Talen Energy could eventually triple its capacity to 1GW of on-site power.
