Hmm guess it is different in different parts of the country.  Around here natural gas is common for cooking, hot water, and heating.  Really the only high current device most homes have is an AC.  Maybe that has something to do with it. Nobody needs 100A for a heatpump though.  30A, 40A for a very large one maybe.  Also heat pumps are horribly inefficient when winters are very cold so that would be the last place I would expect high current installs.
Interesting.  I guess the combination of the extremely cold winters and cheap electricity has something to do with it.  As far as the heat goes, I could certainly burn up 100A to heat my home in the winter here.  It wouldn't be drawn full-time obviously, but if I wanted to match my gas furnace in BTU output, I'd need 97A @ 240V.



If someone has a 200A panel no reason they can't run a large farm but it would make sense to drop some dedicated 240V, 30A circuits to avoid overloading rest of house breakers.
Of course.  You'd run out of power in no time trying to do this.  I run two 50A sub-panels.

200 amps is typical here. Quebec has extremely cheap electricity.

Probably.  I guess if electricity is cheap enough it can displace all other forms of energy.

I almost went with something similar a few months ago (smaller at ~20GH planned), but couldn't make it work with my power costs.  I hope you're able to work out a deal.  Good luck!

I have the ideal place for this.  I have a 2000 sq foot unfinished basement,  with 2 200 amp circuit panels.  Electricity with taxes and everything is about .11.  My basement stays cool in the winter and cool in the summer.

why do you have 1200W AND 850W ?

You could run those on a 1200 easily.

^this.

If you're only getting 2100Mhash out of each rig and drawing up to 1600W per rig, you're doing something wrong.

I have 11 rigs with 4 6970s each and they are getting 1580Mhash @ 683 watts.

If I crammed 6 6970s into a rig, I'd get about 2370Mhash/sec at just under 1000 watts.

Since the 6990s have two of these chips on one PCB, the wattage would be slightly *lower*.

Get those clocks/voltages fixed.  1.31Mhash/watt on 6990s is miserable.  Better yet, send them to Idaho and let me run them.  Smiley  Commercial rates are *FOUR* cents per kilowatt.  Cheesy  Cold winters and dry summers (evaporative cooling > AC any day).  I'm currently running 45Ghash and can cool it with 560 watts of fans+pumps in the summer (paying nothing for cooling in the winter.  Heating my house, actually).  I'd buy them, but your rigs cost almost 3 times what I paid for my 45Ghash equipment.  They're certainly well built though.

 Cheesy  It was those years I spent at the University of California as an out of state student.  In state = ~$8000/yr.  Out of state = ~$25,000/yr.

That is one of the biggest problems with our higher education system out here. I live in California and was amazed when my friends told me what their tuition was compared to mine. Even worse, when I moved to Australia, I payed less as a student there than their own citizens.

Out of curiosity, what cases are those on that picture? Are those Haf X cases? Were you running them with the cases closed? And what kind of temperatures were you getting on the 6990s with what kind of ambient temperature? And one last question: What PSU are you using?

Thank you very much in advance Smiley
