Compute North | August 09, 2022
Compute North, a leader in sustainable, large-scale computing infrastructure, formally announces energization of the company’s fifth TIER 0™ data center. Spanning 29 acres near a wind site in the “Wind Energy Capital of Texas,” the facility will be scaled up to 280MW and marks the first behind-the-meter wind project of its kind. Compute North is also pleased to announce that, for this facility, Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA), a leader in supporting and securing the Bitcoin ecosystem, will be the exclusive customerCo-located directly at the source of power, the TIER 0™ facility will provide the wind farm with guaranteed power off-take. This will serve to optimize the asset which could otherwise be forced to curtail production during peak generation events, wherein the wind turbines produce more energy than can be used, stored, or transmitted. Moreover, the onsite computing operations conducted by Marathon Digital’s ASIC bitcoin miners are designed to convert power directly into a digital and transferrable store of value on the Bitcoin network.
“Together, Compute North and Marathon will advance critical transitions at the heart of the global financial, energy, and computing industries, Our project in McCamey, Texas helps resolve the Texas grid constraints by bringing computing workloads directly to the generation source and eliminates the need for costly transmission lines – all while investing in the local community and creating new jobs in Upton County.”
-Compute North CEO and Co-Founder, Dave Perrill
With the energization of this facility, approximately 40,000 of our installed miners, representing 3.9 exahashes per second, are now in the process of coming online in Texas,” said Fred Thiel, chairman and CEO of Marathon Digital Holdings. “Additionally, given the groundwork the teams at Compute North and Marathon laid at the start of this year, we are now well positioned to continue deploying and energizing miners at this behind-the-meter wind farm in West Texas. We look forward to continuing to work alongside Compute North to accelerate the ramp in Marathon’s hash rate as the facility comes online.
About Compute North
Compute North is the leader in TIER 0™ data centers, focused on delivering the most sustainable, cost-effective computing in the world.

Tigo Energy, Inc., | August 05, 2022
Tigo Energy, Inc., the solar industry’s leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) supplier, today unveiled the Solar PLC Signal Integrity Tool and expanded training material to empower solar installers and EPCs to provide high-quality solar solutions for commercial and industrial (C&I) solar system owners. Following the recently announced Tigo Pure Signal™ technology, Tigo is once again leveraging its technical expertise for its customers with a design validation tool and companion training material that will help installers preemptively identify potential PLC (powerline communications) signal integrity issues in large-scale C&I solar systemsDisturbances in PLC signals, often referred to as “crosstalk,” can result in reduced effectiveness of system communications functions in large-scale photovoltaic (PV) systems. The updated TS4 Design and Installation Course now includes best practices around mitigating PLC crosstalk issues at the design stage before they can cause disruptions in the field. The Solar PLC Signal Integrity Tool, in turn, can be used to quickly identify crosstalk risk in array plans or in systems already deployed. The new tool was designed to be vendor-neutral and can provide guidance on how to resolve PLC rapid shutdown communications issues for solar systems with either Tigo or competitor solutions.
After the Solar PLC Signal Integrity Tool process is completed, installers receive an immediate assessment of the risk of PLC performance issues in the form of a score. The Tigo TS4 Design and Installation Course, integrated into the Tigo Academy, features a section on PLC rapid shutdown system design as well as a technical deep dive into the Tigo TS4 Flex MLPE product line. Through practical guidance and best practices to ensure optimal system performance, installers can learn how to properly design, install and commission a Tigo TS4 system using any compatible solar inverter. The comprehensive two-hour course includes a certification exam worth 1.5 NABCEP continuing education credits.
“An important part of our mission at Tigo is to keep installers at the center of everything we do, and investing in tools and training is no small part of that, The resources we announced today represent the place at which the installer aspect of our mission intersects with our dedication to quality. As our partners in the field raise their stakes with ever larger installations, we are supporting them with things like this new PLC Tool, Pure Signal technology, and impactful continuing education to help them design and support the highest quality PV installations.”
-JD Dillon, chief marketing officer at Tigo Energy
In addition to the PLC Signal Integrity Tool and TS4 Design and Installation Course, Tigo is holding a webinar on August 17 on designing systems for PLC signal integrity. Interested parties can register for live or on-demand viewing here.
