Ukraine. As far as I know, currently electricity costs $0.035/kW*h. Plans are to increase it up to $0.084 over time. That's if your house is connected to a gas pipeline. If you have to use electricity to cook food and boil water, prices are like 3 times lower.

49% of electricity production is from nuclear power plants, the rest is mostly coal, I would guess (not sure about that, though).

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Oh yes! You're right. In fact, I was really considering creating some kind of "computing farm".

Hmm, Would you have space, and electric heating needs, to accomodate a server rack?  If you could afford to build such a system, you would have already done so; but there might be major mining groups on this forum willing to partner.

For one, it is only yesterday that I have found out about Bitcoin project.
And I also have yet to perform more precise calculation regarding payback period. Building such a system requires considerable amount of investment, and since my current financial status is not very strong nor perspective, I'd like to have that money back.
Honestly, I wasn't thinking server rack, I thought usual PC case (several of them), or better yet - a testbench.

BTW, guys, how soon would you expect a top-class GPU card working 24/7 to die?

Average (U.S.) Retail Price of Electricity to Ultimate Customers by End-Use Sector, by State, Year-to-Date through December 2010 and 2009 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)

Thanks to compro01 on #bitcoin-discussion for the link.

Cost per kWh (in USD) = 18.56/100
GPU Wh1,2,3 = 69
Electricity cost per day = (cost per kWh * GPU Wh * 24)/1000
BTC per Day4 = 0.314614404004
USD per BTC5 = 0.70
USD per Day = BpD * UpB

Actual USD per Day = UpD - ECpD

Therefore, I lose (roughly) $0.09 per day mining.  Yay excuse to buy a new GPU! Grin

For those of you interested in solar: How [some guy] built an electricity producing (60W) Solar Panel.  I am not affiliated in any way; arm your ad-blockers, btw.  Additionally, there's an entire category dedicated to the subject at instructables.

did you plug that GPU in AC socket?

if no, add 150 to 250W, because that is what rest of your computer consumes along with those 69W

3. The computer would be on 24/7, whether or not I were mining.

Incidentally, I finally found last month's bill, and the rate is only $0.092075 per kWh: quite different than what's listed for my state. So check your bills! See below.

Scratch that.  I read the bill in haste before posting, and didn't realize there are actually four distinct charges based on kWh usage, each with a unique rate per kWh.

Supply @7.3838c/kWh, Delivery @9.2075c/kWh, SBC/RPS @0.4108c/kWh, Temporary  Surcharge @0.4668c/kWh, which more closely resembles the amount from the table.

I live on Kauai. Electricity here is 38.9c/kWh or $0.389/kWh. It sucks.
I can't wait to move to San Fran, where power is only $0.22/kWh

7.585 cents per kwh in FL. I'm on commercial power so I have a larger customer charge ($30 instead of $10) and I pay a demand charge. The demand change is based off of my highest usage in a 15 minute window. Residential and Small Business pay 11 cents a kwh for the first 1000 and then 13 cents for everything over.

Here in Tallahassee one pays either 13 cents or 15 cents depending on which side of the line you are on. Miami is paying 12 cents. Costa Rica up to about a year ago was 13 cents.

Solar has finally grown up and can be amortized out to 12cents.

Wind sucks because of the mechanical issues of someone having to maintain a machine which would just love to cut you in half.

I'm hoping to fully solarize a miner farm within a few years.

Feel like investing in a Miner?:
