If you live in your parent's basement them just sponge off of them (until they get the utility bill).

Otherwise just steal it from your neighbors or the power company directly.

Solar is expensive.  Coal and natural gas are cheap.  Hydro is very cheap.  Move to a place where the electricity is cheaper.

Solar is expensive but you will just shell out big cash only at first. And later on, you will recover that initial expenses easily if you have a good army of miners.
But since you are living in an apartment, it's not an option to have that method.

Just go with BurtW's piece of advice of moving to a new place with cheaper electricity.  Smiley

Find an apartment that has electricity included, then see how much more it costs compared to similar apartments in the area that do not include electricity. Calculate how much you'll have to run to get a good effective rate and then decide if it's worth it or not.

Those who have/had free electricity have wanted a way to turn that into money. With cryptocurrency, that has become a reality, but there's still no free lunch.

This! I had everything included with my student apartment in China. You could use as much as you want without getting in trouble. Just perfect for mining.

Now, I am in Europe. We have a shared electricity bill (go Dutch), so using more will make the fee go up for everyone, and they will find out who is the culprit. Grin

Shared with how many? If it's a lot, you'll be able to get away with one ASIC box or even more. If it's only a few, stick to a GPU or two mining altcoins.

I like the way you think. We are with about 10 people, and someone has already been caught for using too much electricity, so ASIC miners are off the table for sure.

Getting free electricity requires the allocation of the natural resources near your place. (IE, solar power, wind, etc). Or, just make sure to maximize the right setting of your hardware to mine the most of coins and will gain more profit. Regular maintenance of the hardware itself will boost its performance and will consume less electricity. In addition, keeping your mining rig in cold place will help you conserve electricity.

What did they define as "too much"?

I would scope out our electric company's website and look for their "tariffs" disclosures.

Large businesses like factories with large panels, service usually pay lesser rates or bulk rates.

I would investigate making deals with acquaintances or making friends with people that have such facilities and try to negotiate a colocation deal.

I am having a hard time parsing Georgia Power tariff for large power and lighting as it is listed differently that other tariffs I have read. Maybe some one else can parse out the actual kWh rate, as they seem to high to me: https://www.georgiapower.com/docs/rates-schedules/large-business/5.00_PLL.pdf

No, not at all. The electricity was included within the rent total. I.e. "Apartment with all utilities included". It was 100% legal. I just don't think the landlord expected me to use that much power.

One of my friends is able to eat way more than you would expect from her waist size. She goes to a buffet and pays a fixed price to eat all she could. Is that stealing?

In that way, how is running an ASIC box any different from someone who runs the HVAC all the time because they like it really hot or cold? Or what about a stock trader who runs his/her own "supercomputer" AI to help make decisions? Or what about a (mostly) work-at-home IT technician who keeps a bunch of plasma TVs as status monitors? (Plasma TVs hate mostly stationary content but if you could grab a bunch of obsolete ones for free...) I don't see why merely introducing cryptocurrency changes things.

Much like how buffets attract those who eat a lot, apartments with electricity included attract coiners. It's basically an invitation that says "use as much as you like for a fixed price."

Those who have/had free electricity have wanted a way to turn that into money. With cryptocurrency, that has become a reality, but there's still no free lunch.

does the old magnet trick on the electric meter still work? maybe in some country, hearing about this from a russia guy that was runnign all his gpu with zero electricity because he stopped the meter

No, not at all. The electricity was included within the rent total. I.e. "Apartment with all utilities included". It was 100% legal. I just don't think the landlord expected me to use that much power.

aside from that when they say that everything is included, you are not paying zero electricity, you are probably paying more than someone who has "not everything included" but need to pay for electricity separately
