Site description

Greenidge Generating Station, owned by Greenidge Generation, is located along Seneca Lake in Yates County, NY. The plant was first put online in 1937. While three units have already been retired, its last remaining unit was converted from coal to natural gas in 2016 with a capacity of 106 MW. The plant is currently the site of a bitcoin mining operation. Greenidge’s C-Pond no longer accepts CCR but is regulated under the CCR rule.
