EAST WENATCHEE – Tech companies and local tech-savvy start-ups are flocking to the Wenatchee area to take advantage of cheap electricity rates.

Such was the case at a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier today (Thu) at the Pangborn Airport Business Park where tech company, Giga Watt, showed off their new Demo Pod.

Giga Watt will use the data pod primarily for Bitcoin and Blockchain computing. But, Giga Watt CEO Dave Carlson says he sees unlimited potential for this new project.

Lisa Parks, Executive Director of the Port of Douglas County, says the Giga Watt project is not only important to the development of the Airport’s Industrial Park, it’s also the future of new businesses in the area.

The Giga Watt Demo Pod is the beginning of a large, multi-phase data center project that will also include the construction of a north cul-de-sac off South Billingsley Drive, which will enable the completion of the Giga Watt Pods. The project was made possible through a Community Economic Revitalization Board loan and grant package.
