Amidst concerns of environmental sustainability, Bitcoin miners are symbiotically partnering with nuclear power plants.

One such partnership is a joint venture between Talen Energy Corp. and bitcoin-mining company TeraWulf Inc. The miner started development on a facility the size of four football fields next to a Pennsylvania nuclear plant operated by Talen. 

“We are building demand adjacent to the existing nuclear plant,” said Talen Energy President Alex Hernandez. He heads the subsidiary jointly developing the mining project at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. Additionally, nuclear generator Energy Harbor Corp. said it would start providing power to an Ohio Standard Power mining center in December.
