I have two Icarus miners running on solar power. Or well, I did for a few days before I had to give back the panel I was using. It's possible!

I have a 1.7Kw offgrid solar power setup, where I am its a remote mining town in lightning ridge Australia.

I run 4x icarus and a 5850 from my array.

Its not a cheap option, but it works, the array cost about 6-7K but I needed it for power in the first place, so now I just 'sell' my excess power through bitcoin mining.

You couldnt run a GPU farm economically but fpgas work fine.  I get 1.5GH/sec @ 100w from the fpgas and 350MH/sec @ 100w from the GPU.

I also have wireless internet, so im not connected to any form of power or land line internet.

kind regards

Wireless as in HSDPA or as in 802.11 ?

How is that working out for you ? Much downtime ?

Traffic limits / usage ? Packetloss ?
