Agreements Solve the Wasted Energy Issue for the Wind Farm
ALBANY, NY, March 8, 2023 – Soluna Holdings, Inc. (“SHI” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: SLNH), the parent company of Soluna Computing, Inc. (“SCI”), a developer of green data centers for Bitcoin mining and other intensive computing, announced today that it has signed definitive agreements with key project and regulatory parties for its Texas-based Project Dorothy.
These milestone agreements allow the project to complete its substation interconnect by March 24th. Final testing on all power infrastructure will commence, and assuming ERCOT final approval, Dorothy 1A is expected to be energized the first week in April.
The definitive agreements revolve around a power purchase agreement (PPA) focused on solving the wind farm’s wasted energy issue, also known as curtailment. The agreements also have a mechanism for Soluna’s modular data centers to be a resource for the grid, or ancillary service, when it is strained.
Michael Toporek, CEO of Soluna Holdings, stated, “The definitive agreements signed with our key partners at the wind farm and utility are groundbreaking for our behind-the-meter business model, which can be replicated for all of the projects in our robust pipeline. This combined with our recent announcements regarding interconnection and investment brings us to the final leg of the energization process.”
