Additionally, Greenidge had approximately 2,800 miners in transit as of July 31, 2022.

Development Plan Update
Pursuant to Greenidge's revised development plan, it now expects to have at least 3.6 EH/s of mining capacity by the first quarter of 2023 and expects mining capacity to remain at first quarter 2023 levels until it determines market conditions are attractive for additional growth. Greenidge expects to have ample mining infrastructure available at its locations in New York and South Carolina to accommodate this capacity and has substantially all of the mining infrastructure equipment on hand including the required transformers, switchgear, PDUs and mobile mining structures. The expected cost to procure the contractor services and any remaining infrastructure equipment required to develop Greenidge's mining infrastructure is less than $7.5 million. Following a planned upgrade to the electrical service at its Spartanburg, SC site in late 2022 or early 2023, Greenidge expects to have 50 megawatts of electrical capacity available at the site.
In the second quarter, Greenidge began to upgrade its fleet efficiency by reducing its inventory of older, less efficient mining equipment in order to free up mining capacity for newer, more efficient miners in its order book. Greenidge expects this trend to continue during the second half of 2022 and may also consider other asset sales, including but not limited to sales of surplus mining infrastructure equipment, to further enhance its liquidity position.
Lender Support of Development Plan
As further detailed in Greenidge's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed today, on August 10, 2022, B Riley Commercial Capital, LLC and Greenidge amended the terms of Greenidge's Secured Promissory Note by extending the maturity to June 2023, reducing scheduled monthly amortization payments and reducing certain mandatory prepayments. The interest rate of the Secured Promissory Note was revised to 7.5% and the principal balance following the amendment was $16.4 million.
Title V Air Permit Commentary
Consistent with the intentions provided in its press release on June 30, 2022, Greenidge filed a notice with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation ("NYDEC") on July 28, 2022, requesting a hearing on the NYDEC's decision to deny Greenidge's application for a Title V Air Permit Renewal at its Dresden, NY facility. Greenidge is permitted to operate uninterrupted under a State Administrative Procedures Act extension, in full compliance with its existing Title V Air Permit, until four months after final resolution of the adjudicatory hearing. While no adjudicatory proceedings have been scheduled to date, Greenidge has been advised that, based on the progression of previous and ongoing cases of a similar nature, the appeals process may take a number of years to fully resolve.
GAAP Adjustments and Charges
Following a substantial drop in the price of bitcoin and a spike in energy prices in the second quarter, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 360, Property, Plant and Equipment, Greenidge undertook an impairment assessment pertaining to long-lived assets that resulted in a non-cash charge of $72 million reflected in the income statement and the property and equipment line item of the balance sheet. Further details of the ASC 360 impairment are available in Greenidge's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022.
Separately, Greenidge adjusted its estimate pertaining to a legacy environmental liability associated with a settling pond located at its Dresden, NY facility. The liability results from operations prior to Greenidge's ownership of the site and was assumed when Greenidge purchased the facility in 2014. The adjustment resulted in a $11 million charge during the quarter.
Additionally, the Company recognized a charge of $15 million during the second quarter for a valuation allowance associated with deferred tax assets recorded primarily relating to net operating losses of the Support.com business, which was acquired in 2021.
