Do you think I can make mining profitable if I plug my PC into a solar generator?

Hi Vonniebelle,
Solar-generated power could help your profitability but it’s not as simple as just plugging your PC in… I’m not an electrician but I know you’ll probably need one of those to get it working. The major problem is that mining happens around the clock, whereas solar energy doesn’t. Mining is also energy intensive, so you’re looking at a lot of panels just to reliably power your rig on sunny days and also a big battery bank for night and cloudy times… That kind of setup, with grid power for backup, will be expensive and tricky to put together. I wish you luck if you pursue this, there are some examples online if you search for them.
