It is a good project for environment for sure. But is it cost effective?

Not only is it cost effective and socially conscious, it is the fastest and easiest all but guaranteed investment I've ever made with or without the Bitcoin mining aspect.

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.

Awesome! That drone is very stable, and the Solar setup looks great, very minimalistic.

Wow, first time i have seen here on forum a thread, where renewable energie has won this "No the COST is too much! You will never be able to became Profit!"

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.

This is awesome Cool

Are you able to keep the rigs running 24/7 with the solarpanels alone?

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.

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.

Is is nice that you care about the entire ecological impact and not just pollution  Wink

Do you store electricity generated during day in Battery? or just mine during sunlight or wind time?

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.
