Proactive’s Christine Corrado interviews CleanSpark Executive Chairman Matt Schultz about our new order of 4,500 S19 bitcoin mining units and how CleanSpark leverages the value of the bitcoin that we hold. Read more.
Resilient energy is energy which can operate independently or adapt under the weight of external forces. For a business like a winery or a home, it means the ability stay open and keep the lights on during a natural disaster, power surge, rogue wind, or even a raging fire. Power outages in California have become a massive issue in the past couple of years, most notably due to the growing number of wildfires. As a result, California, and especially Napa Valley, are leading the push for resilient energy. Read more.
In March of 2021, U.S. Senators Tom Carper, Martin Heinrich and Sheldon Whitehouse introduced the Save America’s Clean Energy Jobs Act to help recover almost 430,000 clean energy jobs lost from February to December of last year. Read more.
CleanSpark’s microgrid modeling and design tool was created for Developers, EPCs, and Energy Consultants to help accurately plan projects that utilize multiple distributed energy resources recently underwent upgrades. Read more.
The California Self-Generation Incentive Program encourages residential storage deployments in California. The program provides incentives to help reduce the costs of energy storage (batteries) to consumers. Residential storage (batteries) reduce strain on utilities and provide resiliency for homeowners. Read more.
An aging infrastructure, unplanned natural disasters, and increased pricing are constantly putting a strain on traditional power sources and consumers alike. Why risk your electricity when you can opt for your very own residential microgrid? Read more.
Automated grid flexibility is critical to a renewable energy powered grid by ensuring electricity is used when it is cleanest and cheapest. Automating via Open Standards reduces implementation costs and improves interoperability of programs, which means more money can go towards incentivizing the participation and innovation necessary to support the clean energy transition. Read more.
FERC Order Number 2222 that will help aggregated distributed energy resources (DERs) compete alongside and work with traditional power grid resources. The FERC ruling will promote competition in electric markets by removing the barriers preventing distributed energy resources (DERs) like CleanSpark and its partners from competing in an organized capacity in energy and ancillary services markets run by regional grid operators. Read more.
Many states and utilities have created net-metering programs, which provide energy credits for solar generation exported to the utility grid, but as more renewables have come online, this has become more difficult to manage as the curve of the typical load profile across the utility has changed. The California Independent System Operator (CAISO) has been tracking their “duck curve” of actual and projected net loads across their infrastructure. Read more.
