About us

Optimize Infrastructure sets the new standard for solar value creation. We enable solar owners to operate the most profitable power plants by maximizing the value of solar using batteries and bitcoin miners. 

Our machine learning platform intelligently predicts and automates optimizations in real-time. We send electricity wherever profit margins are highest and remove the grid as a bottleneck to solar energy value creation. The bitcoin mining marketplace provides an escape to higher prices when power market rates fall below optimal thresholds. 

OI is building the solution that bridges the technology and knowledge gap between solar owners and bitcoin miners. For solar owners, OI increases both the marginal price of power and the overall utilization of the facility, reducing financial risk and creating higher return on equity. For bitcoin miners, OI provides the lowest cost source of clean power.  

The OI team has been operating small-scale mining rigs and analyzing data for over two years. Through this effort, OI has created a scalable premise for co-optimized bitcoin mining from residential to industrial scale that represents a new approach in the industry. OI is now entering a phase of rapid product development, which will culminate in a pilot project to demonstrate the technology in 2022. To enable this, OI is looking for technology and engineering leaders to drive our rapid product development roadmap.

To date, we have secured seed funding to hire a team of software and application engineers. We have raised funding from industry experts and TerraVerde Energy, a leading solar and storage analytics, project development, and asset management company based in San Francisco.
