Aspen Creek Digital launches its first solar Bitcoin mining farm

A 6MW high-performance computing center (HPCC) located near a 10MW solar plant went live in western Colorado, the company announced.

The launch of the new sustainable facility demonstrates Aspen Creek Digital’s commitment to the goal of becoming the world’s leading renewable Bitcoin mining operator. The Colorado data center hosts wholly-owned S19 generation miners. The facility is home to ASD’s self-mining operations, and it also provides hosting for Galaxy Digital's mining business.

"We are thrilled to utilize a portion of Aspen Creek Digital's sustainable facility to expand Galaxy's prop mining operation. We remain committed to working with ecosystem players that have a strong operational background to help us reach our mining goals," said Amanda Fabiano, Head of Mining at Galaxy Digital, in an official statement.

There’s also a 75,000-square feet research and development and fulfillment facility co-located with the mining farm, serving as a centralized testing, maintenance, storage, and training hub for Aspen’s future HPCC infrastructure.

"Recent market volatility has demonstrated the importance of our core strategy: controlling power as the principal input in bitcoin mining. Aspen Creek Digital was founded with a simple premise in mind, which is to create a sustainable source of renewable energy to power our operations and put renewables back on the grid. This design enables ACD to withstand volatility in the bitcoin market and insulate our operations from power market fluctuations,” said CEO Alexandra DaCosta.

The Colorado data center is a big step towards ACD’s goal of establishing over 3GWs of wind, solar, and battery power across the United States by the beginning of 2025. Aspen Creek Digital is currently working on launching two more facilities in Texas, a 30MW and a 150MW data centers, located near an 87MW and a 200MW solar farms, respectively.
