Leading Iranian Power Stations to Supply Clean Energy to Crypto Miners

Iran has gradually become one of the leading crypto-mining hotspots in the world after China. The country turned to crypto amid growing concerns over its economy due to inflation and sanctions from the United States. The government regulated crypto mining a couple of years back, and since then, the crypto mining industry has flourished to become one of the key industries.

A few months back, the government authorized power plants in the country to mine bitcoin. It seems many power companies in the country are now willing to sell the electricity to the growing population of crypto miners in the country.

As per the latest report published in a local daily dated September 21st, Iran’s Thermal Power Plant Holding Company (TPPH) plans to sell their surplus electrical supply to crypto miners. TPPH is one of the largest power companies in Iran, and the reports suggest that the company is already in talks to hold a tender for supplying surplus electrical energy from three of its powerplants to crypto mining farms in the country.

The Iranian government's expenditure on building an infrastructure for energy production has borne fruits, and the county has seen great progress in producing electricity. However, the government has also restricted power companies to stable price regimes, limiting these power companies from making great profits. Thus, supplying the surplus energy to crypto miners can prove a big revenue booster for these firms.

Energy Companies to Supply Only Clean Energy

The government has allowed for the distribution of surplus energy to crypto miners; however, this surplus energy needs to be clean and green. As a result, the power companies can only sell electricity produced from clean natural sources like wind and solar rather than ones generated by burning fossil fuels.

At present majority of crypto mining is done via fossil-fuel based electric power, which is available to the miners at subsidized rates. However, the move from TPPH could prove to be a big game changer and could pave the way for the use of clean and green energy for crypto mining.

In fact, Iran has single-handedly brought down the percentage of clean energy used for crypto mining due to the cheap price of fossil-fuel generated electricity. The country has also seen a significant rise in the mining operations ever since the government decided to regulate the mining industry rather than putting a blanket ban. There have been several rumors from time to time that the Iranian government is looking to launch its own central bank-backed digital currency, but nothing concrete has come out of it yet.
