With the passage of time, the Bitcoin mining sector is constantly getting highlighted and noticed for the usage of energy sources with high carbon-emission rates.

The Greenidge Generation is aiming to close the coal ash landfill, which is close to its mining facilities. The firm has been aiming to close the particular site for some and now, it is determined to take care of it.
The firm has confirmed that the profits it is aiming to dedicate for the particular project would be from the miners based in New York State’s Finger Lakes region.
