Greenidge offers up change of plans to $80M data farm planned in Torrey

Call it a change of plans.

The $80 million data farm planned for the grounds of the Greenidge power plant in Torrey is being revamped due to noise ordinances, according to The Chronicle-Express.

Representatives from Greenidge addressed the Torrey Planning Board and Finger Lakes Economic Development Center to discuss changes.

The goal is to use some of the power plant’s capacity.

The Chronicle-Express notes that with natural gas precisely relatively high; and electric prices comparatively low – Greenidge hasn’t been generating electricity for public consumption.

Parent company, Atlas Holdings, is looking for a way to get a return on the $25 million investment to convert the former coal plant to natural gas and build a spur pipeline to supply it.
