Alabama Site

Phase 1 build-out at the Company’s site in Alabama was completed in the first half of 2023. The Alabama Site has a total potential power capacity of 55 MW. The Company is presently working on the design of Phase 2 for the Alabama Site, which could provide Digihost with an additional 33 MW of power.

North Carolina Expansion

Digihost owns 25 acres of graded land in North Carolina with a potential power allocation of up to 200 MW. The Company expects to commence development of the North Carolina site in Q2 of 2024.

Community Solar

Digihost is the Anchor Subscriber on 5MW community solar project located in Angola, NY. This project is designed to generate enough renewable energy to power more than 2,000 households. Digihost signed a long-term agreement which anchors and enables the development and economic feasibility of the project. A ribbon cutting for the project is scheduled for late Q1 or early Q2 of 2024. The project was pushed back slightly due to utility interconnection delays, but it is now set to begin generating clean electricity in April 2024.

In addition to the environmental benefits of the project, it is believed that it will also bring economic benefits to Digihost and has the potential to further reduce the Company’s already low cost of mining.

Carbon Capture

The Company is currently exploring carbon capture initiatives to undertake as it maintains its focus on performing its operations in an environmentally conscious manner.
