Thanks for your help and the link. So at that rate I'd use about 10,700kwh per month. And at .09/kwh I'm looking at a $1000/mth electric bill for one T1 miner.

Definitely can't to afford to start mining with Asics just yet. Maybe I'll start with gpu's or fpga.

35.5kWh ∙ 30Days =

1065kwH per Month for a single T1 Miner, where did 10,700kWh came from?

**Perhaps, this?** (

*1,480*):

1,480(kW) x 24 (hours in day) = 35.5 kWh (whole day consumption)

Some members are using comma (,) instead of dots (.) in decimals which is confusing, IMO.

Or he just mistyped (kW) instead of (W).

Yea, I mess it up by using both comma and dot as decimal separator in single equasion. It's definitely confusing. Sorry about that.

Correct should be:

1.48(kW) x 24 (hours in day) = 35.5 kWh or

1,48(kW) x 24 (hours in day) = 35,5 kWh

So in one month the T1 eats around 1065 kWh -> which is around $100 monthly at OPs el. price.

@OP: as of GPU mining it's more or less the same case.

nevertheless few advantages

- GPUs can be used to mine more algos so you have more options where to use it.

- you most probably find a buyer for used GPU easier than for an old ASIC (in case you decide to cease you mining operation)
