MINERAL GAP DATA CENTERS RECEIVES COAL MINE REUSE FUNDING FOR SOLAR FARM

Mineral Gap Data Centers' proposed solar energy farm in Wise, Virginia, has been named one of the 10 economic development projects selected for grant approval from the Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Pilot program administered by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME) and funded by the Federal Power Plus Pilot Program. The Mineral Gap Data Centers solar energy project is slated to receive a pilot grant of $500,000 from the $10 million in federal grant money Virginia received to develop AML sites, pending final review by the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE). The grant will help accelerate development of what Mineral Gap Data Centers envisions as a solar farm generating up to 3.5 megawatts of renewable power.
