Here's an image of the work going on topside, and I've uploaded a drone video of the progress.

sorry, is this completely off-the grid system?
why not using a combination with the on-grid system?
if i may ask, what's the consideration of going with that route?

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.

If you have decent wind flow...it's waaaaay cheaper to harvest than solar, it tends to come in bursts though so can be less reliable.

The solar installation has been completed.  The final step will be passing inspection with the electric company.  See the drone video of the panels here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKisxNn1ueQ

I've just received notification that the final inspection by the electric company will take place tomorrow.  If everything goes well, by tomorrow afternoon NastyMining will officially be running on solar power!

While the system passed today's inspection, I'm told there is still one more inspection to pass before the system gets turned on.  For now, we wait.

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.

Really impressive here guys.

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.
