The AUC is reviewing applications for a power plant in the Fairview area
Decision: 27527-D01-2023, issued March 7, 2023
Watch an AUC hearing
The AUC has denied applications from Mojek Resources Inc. to construct and operate a 96-megawatt power plant within the existing Gage Battery site, in Legal Subdivision 13 of Section 18, Township 82, Range 3, west of the Sixth Meridian. The AUC issued Decision 27527-D01-2023 on March 7, 2023.
The AUC determined that the project is not in the public interest as the application:
Mojek Resources Inc.’s application proposed to construct and operate 18 5.7-megawatt gas turbine generators to be constructed over three phases. The power generated would be used to supply a Bitcoin mining operation. Phases 1 and 2 would each consist of six generators to serve 24 bitcoin mining containers. Phase 3 would consist of six generators to serve 16 bitcoin mining containers. The total generating capability of the generators would be capped at 96 MW.
