North Vancouver, British Columbia, is considering Bitcoin mining as a means of generating and supplying heat to its citizens. Lonsdale Energy Corporation (LEC), the city's energy provider, plans to "decarbonize" heat production by moving away from traditional natural gas. The LEC, in conjunction with MintGreen, a Canadian crypto mining company, hopes to prevent over 20,000 greenhouse emissions from entering the atmosphere by generating heat with Bitcoin mining rather than natural gas by 2022.
