very nice

I have found solar power to be really reliable.

Way more reliable the bitmain s9's or r4's

Buysolar and I now have 3 avalon 721's
and 2 ⅓ s9's
and ½ r4    in our solar array venture

he also has 2 s9's  for himself  along with a s-7    for a total of 82th.  Would have been more  but lots of dead s9's.

Good luck

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Congrats with your project!

I wanted to become a member of the nastyfans.org but it looks like all the seats are already taken.

Can you provide a link to where I can visit the online auction to see if any fanclub members are selling seats? Because I haven't managed to find one unfortunately.

Is this an exclusive thing or what is nastyfans anyways? are you trying to operate a cloud mining thing? I think you should've done this from at least 2 years ago, I'd like to see a similar project where all the trusted and reputed members all together running a business where community could rely on their credibility to deliver what they promise, but seems like no one cares. shouldn't this be in services to get more visits?

The AC Modules provide power to NastyMining.  I paid for them.

Anyone can be a member of NastyFans, which was established in 2012.  There is plenty more information available about NastyFans in this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=86854.0

The first thing that went to my mind is to ask why do they name it Nasty? But never mind, all I really want to say is that this project is awesome. I am really a fan of mining farms who are using sustainable alternative energy such as taming the power of the sun. Solar Technology is a great way for saving electricity and this is why I love this project. I am interested to invest on this company and I hope there is an online site wherein we can apply even though I am thousand miles away from their area.

NastyMining YoBit.net Sponsorship!



YoBit.net has generously agreed to sponsor NastyMining by donating enough BTC to purchase a wind turbine and bring our total green energy system to over 10KW.  Since we will be generating electricity through wind and solar power, it seems right to rename this thread to NastyMining Green Energy Project and update the logo.

Great project! Of course it is always good to use green energy but this is almost impossible without sponsors. So YoBit is really doing something good for our planet, no joke.

P.S. Although I like your logo very much I want to make one suggestion. I think it would look better if the blades of the wind turbine were a little bit longer and a little bit wider. But as I said I like it as it is too.

Good luck with your project, guys!

I think the idea is that through the purchase of seats it funds the other seats as well as the purchase and hosting of mining equipment which OGnasty would then maintain and upgrade/reinvest as he saw fit.

Each seat passively collects an unknown amount of coin based on the hashpower and sale of seats/seals and other nasty products.

Not really a cloudmining situation.

You'd be purchasing seats off someone else who was selling them. In no way do seat sales fund other seats or mining equipment. Mining equipment purchases are funded with 25% of the NastyFans donation distribution. There are also no hosting costs as space, internet and electricity are donated.

Nope.  If you buy a NastyFans seat in the public auction, you are buying it from another fan who is selling it.  It is in no way distributed to all the seats or has any effect on them whatsoever.

The last two days have been mostly installing brackets and running electrical but the panels have arrived.  They should finish installation tomorrow.




The various breaker/control boxes have been installed and passed the initial city inspection.




Electrical lines have been run to the roof.  These will be painted to match the house.

i am interesting with the project because i think its about green energy that will safe much of money and beside that this project is something new that will help many bitcoin company if they are apply this too. i am interesting with the panels and i think for now, the panels price is still expensive but i am sure that the panels will help to reduce the cost of the fee. i look in the picture, the control boxes is really safe and i think you did a good job sir. good luck for your project and i hope you can get success with your project.

I agree, can you not purchase a grid-tie inverter and sell extra power or at least store energy credits with the power company?

Selling your potentially wasted renewable energy to the power company is a good sidebyside with bitcoin mining. They should be able to come out and install a proper connection for you, then all you'd have to do is swap out or install into your solar system an additional inverter that connects to their box.

My local power company allows us to store our generated energy on the grid...in trade for power credits that count towards the power bill. At the end of the year or whenever they payout a lump sum of any unused credit. Very useful as a backup source of power...even if you have a completely green setup.

Also, this is cool af...I'm envious of your setup.

No.  We have been mining for 5+ years on the grid at this location.  The below picture is a bit deceiving because just to the right is a typical 200amp residential breaker box.




can you not purchase a grid-tie inverter and sell extra power or at least store energy credits with the power company?

The panels being used are SunPower E20 327W AC Modules w/ Integrated Microinverters.  They are far superior in efficiency to the typical linked solar panels in a single grid-tie inverter setup.  The electric company does allow us to sell excess energy to the grid and I am grandfathered into a plan that allows me to receive retail rates.  This is ideal because we will be overproducing in the day to sell at peak rates and buying back power at night when it is cheaper.  I am hoping that agreement along with the addition of a wind turbine later this year helps to bridge the gap in the currently estimated 30% shortfall of green energy production needed to sustain the current operation.

The first thing that went to my mind is to ask why do they name it Nasty? But never mind, all I really want to say is that this project is awesome. I am really a fan of mining farms who are using sustainable alternative energy such as taming the power of the sun. Solar Technology is a great way for saving electricity and this is why I love this project. I am interested to invest on this company and I hope there is an online site wherein we can apply even though I am thousand miles away from their area.

I also find the name Nasty to be something off or odd but given the reputation of this group and once you realized that they are into something nice then we realize that the name is just there to get our attention and to be unique. In a world of common brands and names, having something that can stand out is something to be considered as imperative.

Anyway, I do find this project of suing solar power to be a good move so that if this project can prove to be profitable then we can expect more similar project in the coming days. The power of the sun can be exploited to gain the power of the cryptocurrency called as Bitcoin....a great combination.

If interested, it is possible to plug in a raspberrypi to track and post your solar energy production to the solarcoin blockchain. Will use 3-4 watts. You can also mint (POST) Solarcoin using the same raspberry pi as a full node.  more info on www.electricchain.org There is also a solarcoin telegram channel which is pretty active.

https://github.com/Scalextrix/SolarCoin-Raspberry-Pi-Node

Solarcoin (§ SLR) are like airmiles. Each 1 Mhw generated gets you §1 free. Solarcoins can purchase what others will trade: USD,BTC, Soy candles..etc.

Today I received notification that all of my documents have been approved by the electric company.  The next step will be an installer coming out to verify that the installed equipment matches the approved documents and swap out a test production meter with a bi-directional billing meter.  At that point I will be awaiting final email confirmation that the system has passed all safety inspections in order to flip the switch and activate the system.

I viewed drone video of your nasty mining project. I am really amazed, seems there is invested huge amount of money in it but in result you'll get success, there is no doubt to my mind.
Also have you to pay goverment for wind electricity in USA? Will you consider altcoin mining in this project?

In the USA the government pays us to install alternative energy solutions.

We do currently mine NMC alongside BTC.  If I were to stop generating vanity addresses, I imagine I would use those rigs to mine ETH.  I've also been looking into purchasing an LTC asic miner to begin supporting Litecoin and it is quite possible that will happen soon.

That's very good from usa, I didn't know that.
It will be very interesting which miner you'll choose for that since there are baikal miners in market and also bitmain created new altcoin miner, won't they be better than ltc asic miner or are they only for dash? sorry don't know. Also will there be hashrate selling from your side?

I'm currently awaiting Bitmain to put the L3 on sale, but if or when that will happen is anyone's guess.  We have no plans to sell hashrate, we use it to support p2pool.

Edit:  Bitmain released an L3+ this morning, and I managed to purchase one for this operation.

Hey i didn't see this topic before, but this is some really good project.

currently i am a master student in environmental and bio-based systems biotechnology and dealing with renewable energy and things bio systems.

This project of your is something even i thought of but since i am in no state of bootstrapping finance i am planning it for the future.

I would like to be a part of the project if that is possible. i cannot give funds but maybe some help with they technology itself if its in my domain of study.

I don't think that nastyfans actually utilizes a data center.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't point your mining equipment at the nastypool provided that you have the ability to point equipment at the pool of your choice. I understand that many cloud mining contracts do not allow this.

I installed 35 of those panels.. I currently have 4500 KW hours credit with Con Edison in Bronx, NY


Does Con Edison have a true up date? Eversource just paid me out about $0.03 per kWh for 500 kw. They do this once a year. 0.03 is a paltry amount considering they charge $0.18 per kWh. I wouldn't want to see you lose your credits

Oh, Could have sworn on the thread that you said you were in the Bronx. Must have been someone else. interested to see the production diff in the coming months.
I have a chimney casting on shadow during parts of the day on a set of 12 panels, while the other 18 are never blocked.
But the set of 12 happens to face a southwest, so I do get generation until close to sunset.

I think the confusion came from the below post where bronxnua quoted the OP and gave his location.

I installed 35 of those panels.. I currently have 4500 KW hours credit with Con Edison in Bronx, NY



Another "slightly cloudy" day today, but here's an idea of how geographic location can effect solar production.  Smiley

Looks much better.  I'm anxious to see what my production curve will look like in July.  I'm also beginning to piece together a wind turbine system.  I'm wondering if those cheap smart plugs that chart energy usage via wifi would also chart energy production so I could have some data there.  If anyone knows the answer, or is able to give a simple energy production tracking method for a standard outlet I would love to hear it.

Yes, but will it track production the same way it tracks usage?  I would assume so given that it is AC, but my electronics classes were many moons ago.

News to me.

My utility meter outside shows energy flowing out of the grid and energy flowing into the grid separately. But it is unaware of energy being consumed as it it being generated.
The SunPower meter knows because of configuration being middle man between solar panels, grid and relay panel.

I've used kill-a-watt's before to measure energy consumption, it just measures the flow passing between the outlet & the device(s).

I'll have to do some testing once I get a wind turbine up and running, but I am hoping that a typical smart outlet will be capable of tracking the energy production from an inverter.  As shown in the previously linked video, it is easy to monitor using a kill-a-watt (and there are even wifi hacks available), but I want an out of the box wifi enabled monitoring solution with elegant built-in tracking software.

I've seen the xbee hack before using a rpi... Kill-a-watt makes a wifi model out of the box but it's not elegant and probably only works out of the box with its own display/receiver and likely has minimal tracking, I doubt it is anything you could pull the data from remotely if that is what your trying to do?  I believe placing the device after the inverter should effectively monitor "production" in the sense that it is monitoring the energy coming out of the inverter

TED 5000C and eMonitor are some others you might want to look at
and "The Owl" might be another manufacturer to look at.

I wouldn't go near anywhere near anything IoT-related at the moment. At least not until IoT developers get their security act together: https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/04/a-vigilante-is-putting-huge-amount-of-work-into-infecting-iot-devices/

Worst they could do is disable the wind turbine...  Not a big concern.  As far as a simple energy monitor with wifi, I was thinking more along the lines of something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Monitoring-Wireless-Household-Appliances/dp/B01M3MYIFS/

Any thought on helping with the efficiency (even a little) by utilizing Peltier modules to turn waste heat into power (ever if enough to power a fan). I know it woun't be much and possibly negative as far as cost vs savings for a long time. I have a few modules lying around to experiment with on other projects and could provide some data if needed.

I have not been able to find any manufacturer links online for the wind turbine.  I haven't unboxed it yet though, so perhaps there is some information in the instructions that I will be able to link to online.

I don't think that peltier modules would be very useful to this operation.  I'll certainly check out any proven usefulness if it's ever demonstrated, but my personal thoughts are that they are probably only good for cooling USB sticks.

I love to see solar mining projects, this one looks more legit than most! When you say 9.5kW that means it can supply up to 9500w of power? I'm not sure but I believe with solar it's different, if it were 9.5kW you wouldn't get 9.5kW/hr. If so though, that's legit if it's all coming from solar.

I love to see solar mining projects, this one looks more legit than most! When you say 9.5kW that means it can supply up to 9500w of power? I'm not sure but I believe with solar it's different, if it were 9.5kW you wouldn't get 9.5kW/hr. If so though, that's legit if it's all coming from solar.

9.5kw means in a perfect scenario it will generate 9500w per hour.
But at best it reaches 92-98% for 1-2 hours a day. Pretty much a bell curve from sunrise to sunset on sunny days.

US power runs on AC voltage, panels usually produce DC. You always lose ~15% in conversion. If you are off the grid and have a battery. You lose anything you generate in excess of the battery capacity (which degrades like your cell phone). Also, if you store on battery, you lose a further 15% storing and retrieving. For that reason I chose grid tied and get 1:1 production/usage of my excess power. I have net metering, so I use the local provider's grid as a free battery that defies the law of physics (no 15% loss), and costs nothing to purchase/maintain

Interesting, thank you! I love solar but 1-2 hours of uptime per day doesn't seem great. I guess it's free electricity though so you can't complain too much.

Uptime is direct sunlight hitting it. midday when sun is overhead is when you can get close to theoretical max. during winter with my 10.5KW system, I was getting 45-50kw on sunny days, now around 65-70kw, I expect upto 90KW on a sunny day in mid-summer. This is because closer to the summer solstice the sun is at the highest point in the sky and the days are longest. Closer to the winter solstice, the sun is at the lowest point in the sky and the days are the shortest.

Again 'bell curve', look at prior posts, there are charts reflecting the pattern of generation.

Antminer S9 eats 30-40KWH per day depending on hashrate and powersupply/voltage used. I couldn't run two S9s in the summer because 90KW a day is optimistic sunny day. Avg the days of the month and you will have partly cloudy, ominous, rainy days. Winter avg day was probably 22 KWH, Spring 35KWH a day, Summer maybe 45-50KWH

I do not recommend Solar for Mining, there is nothing free about the electricity after massive equipment investment.
I do recommend Solar for people who use to power their homes long term (15-25 years) especially when their power is >=0.15 cent per KWH.

There are so many positive reasons to go solar...  I'd recommend it to anyone who will be living in their home for 8+ years that lives somewhere with a lot of sun and doesn't need financing.  When you look at all the incentives, added resale value, tax breaks, and rebates, it's overwhelming how much positive there is in going solar.

For the average installation, the authors found that solar panels added a $20,194 premium to the sales price of the house based on repeat sales data.

Ognasty,
your system is nearly identical to mine and also in northeast. Your production should be almost a mirror of this:

My install was also a tad more since I paid to move 2 vents so the panels were contiguous.
The SunPower panels also handle albatross poop better than Hyundai panels.

Were the birds actually nesting under there?

I had to pay a little extra to have them vertically installed instead of horizontally (don't ask) to avoid having to relocate any vents. 

There weren't any birds nesting, but it's a precaution they take out here to keep it from happening.

The turbine hasn't been installed yet, so it would be impossible for me to say definitively.  That being said, the solar was installed on a much larger scale and where I am located it has obvious advantages.  It will be interesting to see the data, but I'm guessing the solar array will be much more efficient cost wise.  I also suspect the moving parts on a turbine make it far more likely to need repairs and shorten it's lifespan compared to the solar panels.

Relocating the existing thermal panels to make room for the photovoltaic panels caused them to no longer drain properly.  This was resolved by adding a secondary drainage pipe linked to both panels and connected to the main drainage pipe.  While there is still some cleanup and painting to do, I am happy to report that it is fully functional so there is no longer a constant bubbling sound as the panels struggle to drain water back into the system.  I took the opportunity to fly my drone and make a video showing a section of the upgrade.  Enjoy.

All existing methods of energy production from sunlight and wind are very inefficient and costly to use. I doubt that they will bring ever profits even if you place them in the desert where the sun always shines. Such projects remind me of the concept car. Nice, but expensive and not practical.

Solar and wind are very practical to supply entire house or to supplement industrial uses.
But not practical if you have 25-50k to invest in Bitcoin and you are going for maximum ROI. The bulk of the budget will be eaten by capital outlays for the renewable hardware and install, that will take between 8-15 years to ROI based in production and prevailing prices. Additionally, systems in that range can only supply the power needs of just one 1400kwh miner.

Historically speaking, buying Bitcoin at any price has yielded the best ROI.
If you just mine for profit, leave solar out of it unless no money down and financing near equal to current dirty power.

You need to be grid tied or have battery backup with enough capacity to last the hours where sun is non-existent or suboptimal.
Practically speaking with grid tie you'll need about 30 panels per Antminer S9 if you are in the north. if you are closer to equator with less clouds and obstructions, you may be able to power 1-2 miners with similar configuration.

The wind turbine sponsored by Yobit.net is up and spinning!  The installation is not finished, as I'm awaiting additional hardware to capture the low voltage electricity when it is spinning at slow speeds and am still awaiting a hi-res image to place on the turbine.  It is however functioning well at high speeds and we have begun generating wind energy in addition to solar!  I wanted to give a "first look" but will post a much more in depth video complete with drone footage as well as showing additional equipment when the installation has been finished.

I want to know how the turbine does in really low winds as that might be an alternate option for me than the higher costing polycrystaline systems. Anywhere your power company will store your generated on the grid I think it would also be amazing whenever there's a wild burst...

Honestly, at low speeds, it isn't worth the effort unless you want something pretty to look at in your yard.  I'm going to stack a low voltage inverter mostly for my own peace of mind that it's generating a small amount a majority of the day instead of just big bursts occasionally or when there's a storm.  

The power company doesn't store overproduced electricity, they pay the going rate at the time it is fed into the grid.  Having our own battery storage might be an attractive option, as it would allow us to go off the grid, saving our hardware from potential failure due to blackouts and allow us to continue mining, as well as sell any electricity produced during off peak times at peak rates.  Peak rate pricing doesn't hit until 12:00 and it is very common looking at the stats that we overproduce electricity in the hours just before.  If we had a battery storage solution, we could store this overproduced energy (as well as fully charge our battery cells using cheap rates) and dump it back into the grid or use it when the peak electricity rates hit.


I randomly stumbled upon this thread, OgNasty this is an amazing project, one that i may try to mimic (once i can afford it)

Thank you.  It has been a lot of fun.

Not noisy at all.  The wind has to be blowing hard to even hear a 'whooshing' sound when standing right next to it.  My pool waterfall is louder and the exhaust vents from my mining operation are MUCH louder.

The neighbors seem to like it so far.  It's fun to watch. 

Dangerous to birds is a bit of a positive side effect as they are afraid of it (I'll update if we have any injuries).  I've had issues with pigeons using my grotto waterfall as a bird bath, and my decorative owl only scares them away about 1/3 of the time (the hawks in the field behind my house do a better job).  I have yet to see a pigeon near the turbine since it's installation so that has been a noticeable benefit.

As a bit of a side note, my home is located on the path of an annual bat migration.  I enjoy watching them fly past my backyard.  I suspect their echolocation will protect them from going near the turbine, but I will keep my eye open for injured bats and pigeons.  If the turbine does injure a bat, I will explore methods for providing them protection.

I have contemplated a solar setup using used solar panels.  They can be quite cheap.  I have an acre of land, but I would have to build a ground mount setup.  Not sure how that can be done cheaply.  I have found very expensive preconfigured systems for ground mounting.   I am also not knowledgeable enough to understand how I can tie into my electric supply.  I have a separate meter with a 100 amp breaker since I only have 100 amp service.  My circuit breaker panel is separate inside the home, but I don't have any empty circuits.  Its all full.

Here's some drone footage of the new wind turbine.  I think I should be able to completely finish the installation on Tuesday.  I'm expecting some more hardware to arrive Monday.

Well, I have a bit of bad news.  I've been struggling to get the maximum amount of production from the new wind turbine.  I eventually caved in and paid for an electrician.  While it was nice to have it confirmed that my wiring wasn't the problem, the end result was a diagnosis of a faulty turbine generator.  So, I have taken down the turbine and sent it back to the manufacturer for a refund.  Unfortunately, the manufacturer is out of stock on 1.2KW turbines, so I will have to order a 1.5KW replacement.  They look identical though, so the videos are still reflective of what will be, with the exception that I have now painted the pole 2 colors (tan/blue) to blend with the wall/sky behind the pole.  I've also stacked a low voltage inverter with the previous inverter to help capture energy with low winds.  I will update again with pictures of the entire setup when the refund/upgrade process is complete.

I am located in the sunniest part of the United States.

According to this map, I get around 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

Nice, seems like I would get half of that according to your map. Guess my ROI would be a little longer but I am a big fan of green energy. Although there are no environmental issues according to some world leaders  Cheesy.

The first thing that went to my mind is to ask why do they name it Nasty? But never mind, all I really want to say is that this project is awesome. I am really a fan of mining farms who are using sustainable alternative energy such as taming the power of the sun. Solar Technology is a great way for saving electricity and this is why I love this project. I am interested to invest on this company and I hope there is an online site wherein we can apply even though I am thousand miles away from their area.
That is true free renewable energy that we have is sun hydro geothermal air we must put end on drilling fossil fuels and it will ruin our mother nature we knew that our earth is at stake time goes by year by year decades by decades temperature is rising yearly and ice is melting on north and south pole. Times time for us to do our job and protect the nature soon we will run out of energy if we don't use it wisely great job on this project i will look after this.

Not to sound like a shill for the solar industry, but if you have enough money to put down and are lucky enough to be in the US and in a state that's solar-friendly, there are some great state-sponsored benefits as well as the 30% federal tax credit; I'm putting a 13.2kW roof system on my house for under $40k, with the work starting in a few weeks once permits are settled most likely. I'll be getting a $11.5k tax credit to carry forward to the next few years, and then with my state's SREC (solar renewable energy credit) program I'll be able to sell 11-15 credits a year to the utility companies, at $150-225 each, for the next 15 years. It's not quite as alluring as the quick and easy money that bitcoin mining promises, but it's a good long-term investment and can also be a great way to make a small bitcoin mining operation self-sustaining and therefore better able to compete against the massive farms buying electricity for 2c/kWh. If you're interested in this kind of project and have any money saved up, or good enough credit to get a 0-down loan at a decent fixed rate, I highly recommend looking into your own state's incentive programs. If your state doesn't have any, call and bother your state legislative representatives about it; they should certainly be doing something with their time other than trying to figure out how best to legally gerrymander the districts for their own party's benefit, whichever party it might be, or how best to legally launder the bribes they're getting by calling them "perks."

Whether your state has good solar incentives or not, if you decide to have it professionally installed be certain to call all the installers you can. The system I'm getting installed now is $60k cheaper than the first offer I got, more powerful, and uses equipment that's been rated higher on durability and efficiency. That first offer was over $7/watt, the one I'm actually getting installed will be $2.92/watt; I've seen several others in the $3.20-$3.60 range. These prices will vary based on your area, probably, but they shouldn't be too far off. If you don't have it professionally installed, I have no advice for you other than to research the laws. Some states won't allow solar energy systems to be grid-tied unless they're installed by a SEIA/NABCEP-certified pro, regardless of whether you have the skill to do so or not.

You guys have made it! It is very nice to see that the solar energy is being harnessed upto such great extent. It is great to see those solar panels over the roof! I would like to know the power of these panels in rainy season if it is dominant there. Because in that period it would be dropping in terms of its efficiency. But anyway you will have atlas 8+ months to harvest solar energy and go beyond the break even point. I am amusing you storing the energy into back up power supply to make it work in the night as well? and are you switching the power in between with ground electricity and solar energy to make it more profitable. Im excited to answers to my question please, do reply even though they are stupid. :-)

We don't have much of a rainy season here in the desert.

Installing a battery backup for the capability to go off the grid, mine through power outages, and profit from rate arbitrage is a current goal.  We do take advantage of low cost nuclear grid energy as well.

Well, I have a bit of bad news.  I've been struggling to get the maximum amount of production from the new wind turbine.  I eventually caved in and paid for an electrician.  While it was nice to have it confirmed that my wiring wasn't the problem, the end result was a diagnosis of a faulty turbine generator.  So, I have taken down the turbine and sent it back to the manufacturer for a refund.  Unfortunately, the manufacturer is out of stock on 1.2KW turbines, so I will have to order a 1.5KW replacement.  They look identical though, so the videos are still reflective of what will be, with the exception that I have now painted the pole 2 colors (tan/blue) to blend with the wall/sky behind the pole.  I've also stacked a low voltage inverter with the previous inverter to help capture energy with low winds.  I will update again with pictures of the entire setup when the refund/upgrade process is complete.

Hey, have you become your new wind turbine? I really waiting to see its power output on low winds.
This low voltage inverter, are you buying it or you make it self?
Also as i learning renewable energies at the University, can you send me by pm some of your circuit schematics? Of course when you can and will it:)

Let's consider it's 8-12 hours. Making of electricity at that time is quite enough. It's a zero cost electricity. Only once we have to inverse for implementation. Then we can easily make  electricity with the help of that . We have to use solar energy for electricity making.Even we can try wind energy.We can use sea waves for electricity.All the above stated are Green project. It will not affect our earth.

Such a wind turbine depends on the wind. This is not the best option, but maybe you are in a place where always a strong wind blows. There are wind turbines of different design which are less noisy and use other threads for rotation. I think they are more promising.

This turbine is nearly silent.  Wind blowing through the trees makes more noise.  I think wind turbines in general are bad with on-grid use though.  They are much better suited to provide small amounts of DC power to charge a battery.  I will be exploring adding a battery system, not just for the ability to go off the grid and profit from rate arbitrage, but also to increase production from the wind turbine.

@OgNasty I wanted to show you this, Solar roof glass tile from Tesla https://twitter.com/TeslaMotors/status/792215795874922497
Unbreakable or replaced for free for lifetime and far more esthetic


While you are generating electricity you have also destroyed your house. I know you can say it's not mine and you don't live on the roof but seriously its just horrible, it kills the charm of your house. I never liked solar panels on the roofs because of this.

I laughed at that. My solar panels look awesome and I get nothing but compliments. They're also far more efficient than Tesla's solar tiles, half the cost, and my current roof tiles are in great shape. Spending twice as much to replace them with a less efficient system would be a foolish waste of money and I have no reason to hide my solar panels. I like that it's very easy to identify that my home is solar powered and I think the aesthetics are a positive. Then again, I live somewhere that most houses have solar panels, so the homes without them are the naked looking ones...

Gunbot Sponsorship Announcement - Tesla Powerwall 2



Gunbot The Automatic Profit Generator for Kraken, Poloniex, Bittrex has sponsored NastyMining with the purchase of a Tesla Powerwall 2.  Having a battery backup will enable us to go "off the grid" with the ability to mine through power outages as well as allowing for us to store excess off-peak energy production to feed back into the grid at peak rates.  This is another great step forward for NastyMining, as we continue our quest to be a best in class socially responsible Bitcoin mining operation.




 


The Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery stationary energy storage product manufactured by Tesla, Inc.  The Powerwall is intended to be used for home energy storage and stores electricity for solar self-consumption, time of use load shifting, backup power, and off-the-grid use.  The larger Powerpack is intended for commercial or electric utility grid use and can be used for peak shaving, load shifting, backup power, demand response, microgrids, renewable power integration, frequency regulation, and voltage control.

Pretty awesome.   I would venture a guess and say that you are likely the only mining operation to have gone this far to "go green".   

Also, a big thanks to Gunbot, as a member of nastyfans, this benefits me quite a bit in the future as well.

Yesterday I put up the deposit for the order and provided Tesla with pictures of the installation area as well as information about my sub panels and breaker boxes, etc...  Today an employee at Tesla reached out to me to let me know they have submitted the information to their engineering team.  I should be hearing back from them in about a week to approve design plans.
