Its depends what hardware u using , how many miners you have

Yeah, sorry... I think the question was too general. Im aware that electricity consumption varies with hardware, location, weather, etc. However, I'm interested in the costs associated to Industrial Mining Operations. I've seen many pics of huge warehouses with hundreds (or thousands?) of miners, like the ones in China. I cant help but wonder, in such warehouses, how much of the energy is consumed by the miners alone? Do the miners represent 90% of the electrical load while other things (lighting, routers, cooling, computers, etc) represent 10%?

I think I should use natural energy sources like solar and wind energy. Use a water-cooled system. We can put the mines in high mountainous areas with low temperatures and use ice water from the mountains for cooling.

Solar energy will cost too much money. If you have 5-6K usd extra then you can start with solar. Otherwise just find cheapest possible rate in your local area and start mining!

TIP: IF ELECTRICITY COST IS HIGH IN YOUR AREA, JUST MINE AND HOLD THE COINS FOR AN YEAR! You can make money that way too!

PS: 5-6K USD solar will power up single, 6 rig gpu**
