That’s bigger than 2 of Amazon’s immense data centers; all so millionaire Private Equity guys in Connecticut can generate 5 bitcoins per day.
Greenidge is using a 67-year old steam turbine that operates at 35% efficiency and should have been retired decades ago (by comparison modern turbines operate at 65% efficiency).
