Nothing to spectacular.  Just a few starting me off in my new found hobby of lotto mining.

Yeah this is amazing, a good mining farm but unfortunately they are selling all of these.

They should have went for a location with cheaper electricity.  Likely if they would have went were some of the Chinese mines are it's possible they would still possibly be profitable.

I don't think selling all of those is going to be easy.   Selling a ton of old gear just is not something most want.

Most of them(maybe all) are old equipment which consumes lots of electricity and brings not good profits, which results to a less chance to sell them.

Lotto as in solo mining BTC.   Not some crap alt coin.   

Right now the U3's pump out quit a bit.  Are not the most efficient compared to the compacs.   The compacs and RPI win on most efficient by far.

The back is removed on the S5 enclosure for the picture, but with them installed it vents the air up through the roof not into the room.  I also posted a more detailed explanation of the big S5 enclosure here:

A post of my stuff again (someday my home mining will go back to dreams and fairy dust...home mining is dying if not dead yet...at least at 13.5c kwh Smiley

here is a link of my IMGUR page and all my pics below

what the heck my 'home mining" days will be over someday ...last of the dodo's Smiley

(note: the KNC Jupiter 550gh btc miner on the bottom shelf that is unused....current use is as a 'gravity assist device' to help keep the miner bench on the Earth!) Smiley

latest setup. Running around ~27TH of gear and have 4.5kW of solar panels on grid tie inverters.

Your rigs are looking great, well organized but i have a question these power inverters do you use them when you don't have electricity or even if you have.
As far as i know there are used with external batteries to not interrupt the power to the rigs when the electricity is down.

The inverters shut down if power goes out. Im not using any battery backup. The solar only offsets a fraction of my overall power usage, never makes it onto grid.

Very nice setup really like you were able to use solar.   Is there batteries or does it just use solar during day?

Also roughly what did it cost for the 4.5kW of solar to get equipment and install?

Thank you!   That seems like it would cut down on costs as that is a good amount of batteries.   I still wonder the price of it.

I have never seen numbers that allowed me to justify it in past.  But I would love for someone to show some numbers that make solar or wind with ROI that is not horribly long.

I will chime in since I just installed a 7.65 kW system mostly to offset my electric bill from mining, however, it is completely a grid-tie system. I paid $.65/watt including shipping (bought from a wholesaler on eBay), $2800 for 2 inverters, installation was $1.10/watt (1 inverter would have worked if I went with SolarEdge w/optimizers). I had to take a break from mining when my Edison bill hit $900 last November for running about 8 TH. Not entirely sure if this system will help in ROI for running S7s, on the other hand, Edison buys back extra power @ $0.9/kW $0.09/kW..

I'm guessing you did the ROI math for the solar factoring in other uses at your home, because otherwise I fail to see how spending thousands of dollars in solar equipment is a good "investment".  Don't get me wrong, I think it's really cool, but the finances rarely make sense to me.

Thank you for sharing price.   Gives me kinda a estimate.   Sadly I cannot justify it with my electricity.   Just will take too long for me to ROI on it.    I can see long term though it would be very nice to have but longer term then I want currently on investments.

Over lifetime of house if you used that as scale I'm sure it will pay off sometime, and then you would have a great setup.  Just seems to take a while compared to cheap electricity.
