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:

  1. Does not meet the participant involvement program requirements of AUC Rule 007: Applications for Power Plants, Substations, Transmission Lines, Industrial System Designations, Hydro Developments and Gas Utility Pipelines.
  2. Has not established that the proposed power plant qualifies for the exemption available under Section 2(1)(b) of the Electric Utilities Act.

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.

Further information about the proceeding is available through the AUC’s eFiling System under Proceeding 27527.
