About Us


PetaWatt is a vertically integrated energy, facilities & service provider to high demand energy consumers, such as blockchain crypto-miners, hydroponic operators, and data centers.

With a history of delivering mission critical integrated solutions to complex information technology services, the PetaWatt team is uniquely situated to address the emerging global needs of emerging high energy demand users.

Leveraging strategic relationships with primarily renewable energy providers, PetaWatt aligns renewable and distressed power generation sources with medium to large-scale energy comsumers that require significant, constant power at low cost.

The attributes and economics of each site are matched specifically to support the individual needs of the client.

PetaWatt builds co-located facilities at energy sources in order to create an energy hub that provides energy to diverse market segments such as hydroponics and blockchain crypto-mining. This symbiotic structure creates significant jobs in economically distressed communities, while providing energy partners with higher prices for electricity, and high energy demand customers, a high capacity, constant power source.

PetaWatt’s ultimate success story is the resulting economic win for the local community, utility, and client.
