The further deployment of mining centers in the province of Quebec, Canada, may lead to an imbalance in the energy system. The Canadian energy company Hydro-Quebec is reviewing its commercial policy since the number of applications for the deployment of mining centers in Quebec has exceeded 70 in just a week. Quebec has recently attracted the attention of miners around the world, especially from China. Manufacturer of mining equipment Bitmain (Beijing) is going to open a data center in Quebec. Negotiations are already underway with local energy agencies. Hydro-Quebec spokesman Marc-Antoine Pouliot says: “We receive dozens of applications every day. This forces us to designate our strategy. We cannot provide electricity to everyone. The situation develops very quickly, therefore, we must be prudent.”
