California-based data mining company Plan C Crypto will open a regional headquarters facility in the public power city of Fayetteville, N.C. Plan C Crypto is expecting to start operations in the third quarter of 2022.
The Fayetteville site will be the company’s fourth mining facility in North Carolina as it seeks to expand demand response facilities across the United States. The project will be in an already-existing, industrial-zoned facility.
Plan C Crypto expects to create 19 jobs in 2022, with more to follow, for skilled professionals in the electrical, security, and information technology fields, featuring yearly salaries that are significantly higher than the county average. The company is targeting military veterans and spouses as potential employees for the positions.
“This is a great example of community collaboration and how public power is a huge benefit to local economic development,” said Elaina Ball, CEO and General Manager of Fayetteville Public Works Commission (PWC).
“Plan C Crypto has unique energy requirements, and PWC is able to meet their needs for reliable, affordable electric service in a timeframe that helped facilitate them, not only locating their business in Fayetteville but also redeveloping vacant property,” she said.
