It goes without saying that Tesla took center stage last week when the company announced it would no longer support bitcoin payments for its electric vehicles.

The message seems to have resonated, as Greenidge Generation Bitcoin Mining has vowed to be carbon neutral in 2021 and beyond.

Carbon Neutral Bitcoin Mining

After announcing plans to expand its Bitcoin mining operations last month, Greenidge is now looking to go entirely carbon neutral this year and in the future.

The company is committed to the cause, and it plans to invest in US-based renewable energy projects.

According to a recent press release, the company will also take part in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which is a market-based program where participants sell CO2 allowances through auctions and invest the proceeds in renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Speaking on the matter was Jeffrey Kirt, the CEO of the company, who said:

“Our bitcoin mining capability is already best-in-class and seamlessly integrated with our electricity generation that powers thousands of homes and businesses. By taking the bold and unique step of making or cryptocurrency mining fully carbon neutral immediately – as opposed to some distant date in the future – Greenidge is once again leading in environmental efforts.”

Musk’s Message Resonates

Greenidge’s announcement comes days after the leading electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla, revealed that it would no longer support bitcoin payments. As a reason for its decision, the company cited environmental concerns related to bitcoin mining.

Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, confirmed and reiterated that he is bullish on crypto but so long as it doesn’t have a negative environmental impact.

The company also said that it’s looking for ‘greener’ alternatives to Bitcoin so that it can continue accepting crypto payments. This led to many speculations about which cryptocurrency it would choose. Shortly after, Musk said that he’s working closely with Dogecoin developers to improve transaction efficiency, causing many to believe that the meme-inspired coin might be Tesla’s choice.
