I can't wait for the first time the cops bust a place because they're SURE it's a grow house -- drawing lots and lots of power, heat signature of the place is through the roof -- and they come slamming through the door looking for all the pot, and all they find is a bunch of computers humming away Smiley

At these prices, I don't feel sorry for a landlord!  Shocked

I live nicely for half the price in western Europe!

Yep, real estate is way overpriced in the Toronto (aka GTA) area and as a result I'd say so are rents. If that landlord has the property already paid off (ie no mortgage) then that $800 is pure profit (minus expenses and other misc items) so our psknives's electricity usage may go unnoticed or maybe the landlord won't care all that much - at least not until the power bill approached the the multiple hundred dollar mark lol


Property tax is a huge expense in some areas.  I bet that is why landlords costs (and therefore rents) are so high.

Any contract that has a free element usually has an additional 'fair use' statement in the small print. My guess is that free electricity would not include running internet or mining services 24/7 as fair use and you'd get the bill enforced legally if you refused to pay, as you'd be in breach of contract.

Once again there is no such thing as a free lunch...unless you live in your parent's basement..then you're living like a king..lol mine away!

No but seriously yeah I bet most smart landlords do include a small clause or disclaimer that will prevent you from consuming the Gigawatts of electricity your dream mining farm would require. So I'm afraid with all things you gotta pay if you wanna play. Thankfully mining is still profitable - for some people - so the electricity costs can be covered and justified.

If its an apartment building without meters for each unit, it would be sorta hard to tell who's using all the electricity. I guess you could just start shutting down breakers and see when the meter slows down a bunch.

Can they not check the load on the circuits? I dunno, I'm no expert on this.
