i think it would be posible to do this at a great scale, and somewhere where there´s a lot of hours and of sun and cheap electricity, but we are in the same.

It still would be a long term investment even at a great scale.  I see it as a different investment then bitcoin, which is still pretty short term on miner lifetime.

So even if you manage a big scale investment it is long term.  I see it as apples and oranges for lack of a better term.  They are just not the same investment I don't think.  You might use the electricity with your investment for bitcoin miners, but I don't see it as a bitcoin investment.   I think miners are more likely to pay for electricity from one then actually build a big scale solar farm.

If I understand right, you mean that it is better for a miner to pay for electricity than build a solar farm. I agree with this. I mean I think that even to pay for elecricity in the areas with highest electricity rates still better than establishing and exploiting a solar system.

Yes good idea , but installiation on roof is expensive. I Think better way  is wind energy.

The solar power is great idea, i my home use 4x panel 250W during a day.
In night use baterry Bosch
I see expansive my system for 10 panel and 8 battery 210Ah, for my small mining system.

If you don't mind me asking what did it cost to get this system in place? And if I read right it is 1000 watt in total?

Are you using it for mining?  Or just your electricity i general? Thanks for sharing always love real info.

I live in Brazil, my solar power actually demands 1000W
This system demands computer 400W and 2 gridseeds 200W, lights and small gadgets.
In Brazil price this project is R$ 4,500 BRL, i living Sao Paulo.

Unless you own an ASIC farm, solar panels won't do anything. You don't have the mining power to get an ROI, unless you want to wait multiple years, which will probably be more than what your minter can last.

You don't have to get all the panels at one. But every one you get will in time reduce your expenses.

The solar power reduces cost of energetic, my mining ring is a low profit, working for trade bitcoins for BTC.

You don't have to, buts its a really good idea to do so. First of all, the real expense is the inverter, cables and mounts. And of course the batteries. But you're better off going grid-tied, without batteries. (Sell power during day time, buy back power during night)

The second and probably the most important reason is that each panel in the whole array only performs as good as the worst one. Meaning that when you add 5 panels, 5 years later, the new panels are going to perform as the 5 year old ones.

mining with solar pannel is profitable only after roi of soler panels. solar panel are not cheap as you think its price is almost equal to mininw hardware.so that you will have to recover cost of solar panel.

but when you success to recover cost of solar panel it will always profitable for you in every way.your electricity bill will be zero.

The thing is when you make back the cost of your solar panels it's time to replace most of them with new ones or at least to spend some money on fixing those which went out of order. Of course there are exceptions, HQ panels, but they also cost much more.

I live in Brazil costs are very high, reduce my pantries invest in bitcoin for trade, the solar power is great investment
