I'm interested in a solar setup also, what's needed for say 2 AntMiner S3+'s (let's say 850watts)?

He'll never divulge info on his solar setup cept the panels & that info was vague,I've tried PM's,posts,nothing but a few tidbits   Sad

Heres my mess since May:



72pcs @ 28Mhs @ 590W

BTW,I forgot how frugal those little miners were  Cheesy

I run 4 S3s on a solar setup.
For a properly working system you need an MPPT charge controller.
A good one will cost around $200.
Then need solar panels of total 1500W for you to run 2 S3. That will cost another $1000 (Not DIY).
DIY Panels are cheap, but I will not recommend it for professional installations like for mining.
Now Solar Cable, Fuses, MCBs and other Misc. electrical components costs around $200.
Mounting stands for solar panels: $200
Total it will become $2000+ if you are doing it yourself.
Else if you are handing over the solar project to an agency/company it will cost above $5000.
See my Solar Setup Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=655325.0

Do your ROI now. Solar setup is expensive.

if am not mistaken I can recall he wrote at some time the his shed was wiped out from bad weather and most miners had water in them so he has lost much of them due to mulfunctions...

It would probably be cheaper and easier to just get a natural gas generator.

For a solar setup the below components are required.
Also see this post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=655325.msg8995013#msg8995013

Solar Panels
Charge Controller(s) (MPPT Prefered)
Inverters (AC-AC or AC-DC-AC)
Battery Bank (and their maintenance equipments)
Solar Cables (Costly)
Fuses/MCB/ELCBs and other electrical components

You can get these from directly from manufacturer or dealer or ebay.
Better source directly from manufacturer is possible.

Yes will be a very expensive setup which will not ROI if depends 24/7.
A Solar + Grid Setup installed as DIY may break even in 2 to 3 years.
But again at this mining environment its even not possible to ROI the miner without calculating electricity.

Well I got rid of all my Other Miners except 8 x ASiCMiner / Bitfountain Block Erupter 336 MH/s (SHA256d).

What I had previously was

1 x Innosilicon A2 Terminator 88-95 MH/s (SCRYPT)

3 x Gridseed G Blade 5.2 - 5.9 MH/s (SCRYPT) (15.6 - 17.7 MH/s Total)

6 x GAWMiners Fury(s) 1.3 MH/s (SCRYPT) (7.8 MH/s Total)

7 x Zeusminer Blizzard 1.3 MH/s (SCRYPT) (9.1 MH/s Total)

Grand Total: 129.6 MH/s (SCRYPT)

and

1 x Bitmain Tech Antminer S1 180 GH/s (SHA256d)

1 x Avalon Mini 60 GH/s (SHA256d)

18 x Bitmain Tech Antminer U2 2 GH/s (SHA256d) (36 GH/s Total)

33 x Bitmain Tech Antminer U1 1.6 GH/s (SHA256d) (52.8 GH/s Total)

Grand Total: 328.8 GH/s (SHA256d)

But now I am just humbly Hobby Mining with these 8 x ASiCMiNER / Bitfountain Block Erupter USB 336 MH/s (SHA256d)

Installed the pair of AntMiner S3+s in a case at my office today.  Oddly, when I built it at home and turned it on, the power supply showed it was running idle at 78-79watts (network switch not connected), but at the office here after I powered it in (with network switch connected) is showing about 725watts which I thought it wouldn't do until I set it to mine.  Anyway, I hoped it wouldn't blow any fuses having a couple computers, printer, etc. plugged into the same socket and luckily it didn't.  So all is good so far.  Power supply shows it's running at 91% efficiency and in case temp is at 103F.

Now being a newbie, I've got to set up the rest.  Downloaded CGMiner 4.6.1 so tomorrow I'll start setting up the rest, but being absolutely new I hope it doesn't take long to get it up and running.

My business partner and I's company is near LAX.  Looking to buy another 2 or 3 AntMiner S3+s as soon as BitMain makes them available again.  Already have another case set to go as seen in my earlier pics, will go right next to this one pictured in the open space on the right.

Which company, i'm near you guys. I'm experienced in mining and can provide mining gears with ease.

Where are you located? I don't really need any hardware, I'm pretty efficient at building computers as I've been doing it since the early 90's with my first 386.  What else do you offer and what's your company name?

I believe he is offering you re-sale of equipment and set-up. Possibly 24/7 maintenance and support.

I don't see the point in putting the S3 in a case.  Its already in a case, it's not that loud, and heat isn't really an issue.
