So what should I do if electricity is so expensive here? I'm seriously heart broken now that I know what synergy charge.  Cry

Solar panels.

We have these already .. that's actually half the problem:

You see we are charged more for the peak rate because we have solar and thus a smart meter than we would be charged without it. I also live with my parents and they
will freak out if I am using their electricity to mine bitcoins. They actually want to see themselves getting a credit for the power they supply back to the grid rather than a bill for what they
draw. My mum goes mental if I leave a light on so I am doing my best to change most of the lights in the house to LED and I want to sell off all the LCD screens in the house and replace them with LED screens. I have started paying money on their power bill via direct debit from my bank account every fortnight but it still won't make financial sense at the rates we are charged.

I am also looking for other alternatives e.g. I live in a horse racing area and there is a lot of horse shit that the horse trainers can't get rid of fast enough. I would like to make
a horse poo - > methane -> electricity generator.

so then I have horse poo -> methane -> electricity -> mining rig -> bitcoins

Something like the examples here:

or this story here:

I have been looking for open designs and resources like this:

and I'm looking up videos about the subject like this:

I will also need to buy, build or modify a gas combustion turbine.

I would probably make a very low power machine and still bitcoin on it and get it to hash even if its a very slow hash rate simply as a proof of concept.

A more exciting possibility is perhaps even using bacteria to produce electricity directly:
