According to a Company-sponsored report “Impact of Large, Flexible Data Center Operations on the Future of ERCOT,” (Joshua D. Rhodes, PhD), “… operating data centers in a flexible manner during times of high-grid prices could lead to the deployment of even more wind and solar and—if they are operated with enough flexibility—could result in lower overall carbon emissions.”
“Green energy is the future, but we need to rethink the grid in order to accommodate its growth,” said Lancium Chief Executive Officer Michael McNamara. “Lancium Controllable Loads act like large power stations in reverse by absorbing abundant renewable energy while simultaneously providing grid ancillary services. Climate change is a big problem, and Lancium is doing our part by working on large-scale solutions.”
The initial application at the Fort Stockton Clean Campus will be a 100,000+ square-foot facility for Bitcoin mining and other high throughput computing workloads. The expected completion date for the first 25MW stage is Q1 2022 with the facility reaching full capacity of 325MW by year-end 2022.
Lancium and its partners will invest hundreds of millions of dollars at the facility and generate dozens of local, high-paying jobs. Lancium expresses their appreciation to the people and officials of Fort Stockton and Pecos County who have accommodated our growth plans. Lancium is looking forward to a productive partnership with the community for many years to come.
