Mining on an industrial scale requires an adequate amount of electricity. And the American energy company Talen Energy decided that using nuclear power for mining was a great option.

Talen Energy intends to develop a cryptocurrency mining facility and data center that will join the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station (SSES) nuclear power plant in Salem. The power plant is owned by Talen Energy itself.

Two separate substations will be built to power the facility. The project is due to start in the second quarter of 2022, and Talen Energy has already received most of the relevant permits.
