Bitcoin, blockchain, cryptocurrency – what do these terms have to do with the Scrubgrass Power Plant? A free informational meeting will be held at Scrubgrass Grange on Tuesday, June 21st at 7:00 pm, to learn about this mining activity. Brian Flinspach, Safety/Compliance Manager, and Jim Pierce Operations Manager of the Scrubgrass Reclamation Company will present the program.
The power plant was built in 1992 and initially provided electrical power to the grid but has recently changed focus and is now providing power to operate hundreds of computers involved with the cryptocurrency market.
