New DIY SunSynk 5.5 Solar Power Supply For My Crypto Farm


Recommended Posts

Time to get rid of the old Low Frequency 24v System and Configure And Install The New 48v SunSynk 5.5 System.
Started testing the new system today.
CT Clamp temporarily installed on the incoming grid DB Board.
Waiting for electrician to come hook up the grid permanently and provide certificate.
I hope he does not give me too much "fixes" to do :)

Solarman Portal Pretty Crappy :(
Will be setting up my own Real-time Data-logging :)
Solar Panels moving to my garage roof on the weekend, less shading :)

Mining is expensive if you use ASIC's on grid power in SA, and you need large solar to power a decent number of ASIC's.

I imagine you are mining with GPU rigs, as these are less power hungry? With ETH prices at the moment it's worth it. :)

Do you mine 24 hours, or just in daylight hours?

Good luck, and may the ETH be with you. 😂

Yip ASIC mining is not quite efficient enough yet to use on small home solar.
Mining rig runs 24/7 on solar and batteries.
It's the mining that has paid for all the solar goodies :)
And now the house benefits from the excess power too :)

Small GPU Rig mining 24/7 on solar and batteries.
Constant 24/7 load - 705 watts
Each GPU is tuned to run at about 60watts (these are high efficiency 1060ti gpus)
There are much bigger gpus that mine higher hash rates, but their power requirements make them too expensive to run on solar and batteries.

Looking good, and making money. :)

Back in the day (2017), I used to run ASIC's for dash, and GPU rigs for ETH. Now-days the ASIC's are off and I only run RX580 and 1050ti for ETH and RVN, just for fun. The machines are also on 24/7 unless we have Eskom failures for days in bad weather.

Another mining avenue you can look into is FPGA mining. Its more efficient and profitable than GPU, but you need to be able to "program" the FPGA's or know someone who can. FPGA = Field Programmable Gate Array.

Retired my 2 D3 miners 3 years ago already, they super INEFFICIENT :(
I still have a few 1050ti's mining Raven, they have earned themselves back multiple times :)
Not had the time to learn how the fpga stuff works :(

Yip, the AntMiner D3's ate way over 1kW to get 19.3G/hash. The current machines are way more efficient, but it's a never ending upgrade path, and the old tech is literally useless. GPU's are the cheapest and easiest to mine with, but I also CPU mine, as the machines are on, and there is always spare CPU cycles. Make every Watt work. 😆
