Hello,
I wanted to know if anyone tried to re-use waste energy in order to charge some battery that will parcially giving power supply to miner(s) in order to reduce the cost of consumation ?
I thought about these 3 things
- Solar panel
- Wind turbine
- Use heat from miner to produce electricy

I know it maybe won't be able to power a miner, but it could charge a battery that will parcially supply miner, and days with good solar and/or good wind would maybe give enough electricity.

Maybe it's too expensive for the little earn, but I just wanted to know ^^

There is just a lot of initial cost's with solar/wind/water, etc.   If you have the right conditions you could set up a nice setup.  But in most cases it is cheaper to follow the cheap electricity.  

If you compare building those compared to moving miners to a low power location.  The low power normally wins the competition.  You can do some ROI math to it but I think you will be surprised with start up cost's on solar/wind/water.

I got lucky and happen to be where electricity is fair priced, not cheap but fair where I still have done well over time.  And if you don't have decent cost electricity, there are hosting options that you can look into.
