Notice that not one person has mentioned solar or wind power?

I have been thinking about solar powered FPGA rigs, but it's so huge one-time investment that I would need a loan.

Solar or wind power has nothing to do with blowing a fuse.

that is because solar power would NEVER work. At least not with current existing technologies.

What do you mean it would never work?  You may not power 100% of your rigs from just your PV array, but you offset as much as you can.  We are installing 33 panels that total to 7.6kW.  We have one bitcoin mining rig that takes ~600W and a whole bunch of TV's and other electronics.  During the day a percentage of our total power draw is going to come from the panels, during the night we should be backfeeding (selling) a significant amount back to the grid.  Explain to me how that doesn't work?  Scale it up to tons of bitcoin mining rigs, say you even had 8kW of rigs...you are still offsetting the cost with the array.

I would really like to see the Break Even Analysis on 33 Panels and mining.

How long until the break even point?

Anything over 5 years is a no go for anything.

Why would the break even analysis be different for mining than anything else?  A kWh is a kWh.  It isn't like mining uses special mining kWhs.

Depending on where you live like it or not there can be MASSIVE subsidies for solar.  All that matter is which is cheaper over the life of the system solar or power company.  In CA between federal subsidies, federal tax credits, state tax credits, real estate tax exemption, and more cash out of pocket can be less than 1/3rd of retail.

Still solar is irrelivent to the thread.  Regardless of you you get your power (solar, power grid, 100 prisoners on excercise bikes) the issue of how to distribute power remains the same.

Just finished wiring my basement for 8 more 220v outlets on a 6ga wire to a 40a breaker.  My fingers are raw... fuck you 6ga wire and your stiffness!

Actually, I think it was the feeder 12ga wires that did the most damage to my precious little digits.


With that kind of power usage, they'll think you are operating a weed farm.

Well the traditional cost benefit is the cost of the GPU, Mobo, etc... and the cost of kWh.

The cost of a kWh from Solar will have to be judged from the Cost of the Solar Panels and electronics required to provide the power necessary to run a mining Rig/Farm. How long will that Farm have to run until it pays for the Solar Panels and Electronics required?

But yes, a kWh is a kWh.

I've seen people have like 20 or more mining rigs set up in one room? how is that possible. Each outlet can handle only 15-20 amps. You can't even put 2 mining rigs into 1 outlet or its going to blow a fuse.

extension cords?

i use power from 3 rooms

just make sure you get a good extension cord
