Data center company Wyoming Hyperscale and small modular reactor nuclear power startup Oklo have signed a non-binding letter of intent outlining plans for the PPA, which will last for 10 years. 

“As the widespread adoption of artificial intelligence increases, Oklo remains dedicated to providing clean, reliable, and affordable energy solutions to meet the needs of our data center partners,” said Jacob DeWitte, co-founder and CEO of Oklo. “Our partnership with Wyoming Hyperscale underscores our commitment to advancing sustainable energy practices and supporting high-efficiency operations within the data center industry.”

Wyoming Hyperscale is building a data center campus on 58 acres of land on Aspen Mountain, a remote site southeast of Evanston in Wyoming which it calims will be "the most advanced sustainable data center in the United States" once up and running, and has already pledged to use liquid cooling, with waste heat put to use on a nearby farm.

Trenton Thornock, founder of Wyoming Hyperscale, said: "Our goal is to create data centers with minimal environmental impact. This collaboration with Oklo perfectly aligns with our vision for sustainable, efficient operations. By merging sustainability with advanced technology, we are setting a new standard for the future of accelerated computing.”
