I wondered this, but, as somebody here pointed out, in the UK it is better to sell the electricity to the grid, and buy the electricity back at a lower price. How long the gov. subsidy will last is anybody's guess though.

I'm starting to plan my Crypto Coin Tree speculation club

Send me a PM if you would be interested in taking part in the initial planning.

I don't see how you can buy back electricity from the grid at a lower rate than what you sold them.

You can't. The exact numbers have changed dependant on when you made your solar installation, and are being significantly reduced next Year. In the UK there at two Taffifs, a generation Tarrif where you are paid ~ 13p/KWh for generating solar electricity, this is paid whether you use this electricity yourself or not. Then a feed in Tarrif for any unused electricity at ~3p/KWh.

So if you are a Miner in the UK your best bet is not to send surplus electricity back to the grid at 3p, but to use it for mining.  Smiley

In New Jersey winter power is 13.3 cents if you sell back to the grid you get 4.4 cents.
So mining is better then selling back. Battery setups do not work well price is high and batteries die.
If you have a lot of solar power you can sell some back and mine 24/7 for free.

Let's say you have 60kwatt system.  Mine 24/7 with 30 kwatt sell back 30 kwatt . Power  bill is zero.

The panels last 25 years. They pay off in a few years and you have free power to mine.
 This is my understanding of it in my home state.
