This site marks GDA’s 6th facility in Texas in the last few years. Texas’ wealth of renewable energy and a flexible power grid has played a pivotal role in the company’s strategic decision to further invest in capacity in Texas. 

The Tarbush data center is situated within the ERCOT West Hub, a major hub for renewable energy production in Texas. According to ERCOT, as of January 2024, the total installed renewable capacity in Texas is 55GW and record renewable generation is 35GW, of which the majority of the capacity is located in the ERCOT West Hub. With an array of wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources, the West Hub is well-suited for wind energy production, benefiting from nearby wind farms.

“This hosting agreement is an important milestone for us as we continue expansion in the West Texas region,” said Andrey Kim, CEO of GDA.

“We believe that our commitment to renewable energy and utilization of some of the most advanced technology in the bitcoin mining industry empowers us to engage in efficient and reliable bitcoin mining operations.”
