Ep. 43 The MN Public Utilities Commission’s Take on Bitcoin Mining

Hey everyone, welcome to this week’s release of the Hashrate Happy Hour Podcast, powered by Giga Energy.

This week on the show I had the pleasure of sitting down with Joe Sullivan, the Vice-Chair of the MN Public Utilities Commission.

I was absolutely thrilled that Joe took the time to chat with me about all of this and we start the episode off with a deep dive into the new Meta data center coming to MN and how they established their rate rider.

We also get into all sorts of discussion about renewables, ancillary services, Joe’s thoughts on large flexible loads on the system, and many other topics.

We honestly just ran out of time and Joe and I will be sure to schedule a follow up to keep the discussion going.
