so how much current trips the breaker and someone starts asking questions?

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

Never. 100% included in lease subsidized for whatever silly reason. Sure, I pay manhattan rent ($1800/month) but I pay that with my normal income already. Mining is 100% free for me..

ASICs are tipping the playing field, as with GPUs most of the cost to mine, spent in a year, went to electricity.  With ASICs, most of the cost is in the hardware, with a fraction of that amount going to electricity.   But low cost electricity sure doesn't hurt!

wall to wall racks and a few tons of cooling would test that theory

My hydro rates: Ontario, Canada.

On-peak: 11.7 cents ( 11am - 5pm )
Mid-peak: 10 cents ( 7am - 11am, 5pm - 7pm )
Off-peak: 6.5 cents ( 7pm - 7am )

Plus a bunch of crappy delivery charges and debt repayment jokes.

Because they heard BitCoin has a high value, they inflated my bills.
But i don't do the mining at home.

in sydney power is billed quaterly and price is broken up into
$0.20 for first 500kwh
$0.26 for next 1000kwh
$0.32 after that

so its hard to make yourself turn a light on in the middle of the night to go to the toilet let alone max out a rack of gpu's

who would have known that digging up coal and burning it was not a good source of power especially after you pay a carbon tax on it.

lucky we send all that nasty uranium over seas for everyone else to get cheap power
