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.

Awesome! I didn't think there would be a powerwall this quickly. Nice work!

There were 70mph winds last night in our first monsoon test for the wind turbine.  I'll admit the pole was flexing quite a bit, the sound it made was like something out of a horror film (actually reminded me of this scene from Crocodile Dundee 2), and when I tried to go get video of it I could only describe the scene as terrifying.  Nevertheless, it survived, and powered our current mining operation singlehandedly throughout the night.   Grin

i am a newbie to home ownership and am considering adding solar panels to my roof. One thing I just noticed from many panel specs: they are 12V DC.

Is there a way to hook the panels directly to a rig, bypassing the inverter etc.? I know battery is needed for overnight operation but I just want to know if this can be done, why or why not.

Thanks.

My panels have AC inverters built into them.  They go straight into my home's power without a battery currently.  There is no way I'm aware of to power a miner using solar power without the use of an inverter.

OG,

why isn't this possible? btc rigs all take input of 12VDC in my understanding.

Well, when your device can take 12 VDC input then solarpanel with 12VDC output can be fit directly there, but you need a battery system cause the sun light isn't constant. But when a miner is connected to a 220-230 VAC with a power supply (transformer 220 VAC - 12 VDC) or something like that and you don't want to put it away, only in that situation (perhaps) you take panels with integreted inverter (12 VDC - 220-230 VAC) thats fits directly to power of the house

It was a busy day yesterday. I found myself climbing around in my attic running wiring for a new surveillance camera. Now both the front and backyard are being actively monitored and recorded. Hopefully it is never needed, but nice to have another layer of security for this growing operation. I also hooked up a new energy monitoring device capable of monitoring both inverters in an attempt to see how much electricity the wind turbine is producing. Hopefully by the end of August I'll have enough data to begin charting that as well.

I've had a few conversations with Tesla employees to help them design the engineering plans for the Powerwall 2 install. I was unaware that my electric company has to sign off and the city has to issue a permit for this installation. While I don't see this as being a problem, it will most likely mean that installation is at least 2 months away.

Thanks for all the kind words on this project! It's been a lot of fun so far!

This can be done if you have a small miner, one or two solar panels, and a 12V battery, all in very close proximity to each other. One key item to remember is that with say a 1Kw miner, that's 83+ Amps at 12V. That's a bunch of pretty serious wires to carry that current. If you have enough panels to produce 1KW, it isn't practical to place those close to the miner and the battery. When you get to tens or maybe a hundred feet of cable to carry 80 Amps at 12V, it gets to be pretty cumbersome. Just imagine what it would be like with 10 Kw of solar panels.

Just like with electric companies, it's much better to use a higher voltage with lower amperage to transmit power over distance (e.g. miles). Same principle for a solar setup since you don't want a mass of heavy gauge wire to connect all the components, just on a smaller scale. You don't want to lose a lot of power, just in the wiring. You see this at all levels of a power distribution system where it's more efficient to use a higher voltage to get a lower current (e.g. 240V or 480VAC for high power applications).

I'm sure I'm not the only one impressed at what you're doing - well done, it's great to see mining using renewable energy.

I think it's safer to say you need an inverter. It's like power coming into house it gets turned up n down . Id think you'd burn that miner either fire or edit: burst of power.

They have an office in AA.

OG I forget which post. But which n what will you be mining? This 8/1 issue. And prospect of Nov?
