I am putting together a fully automated off grid solar powered cryptocurrency mining farm at the off grid homestead.
This entire system will be controlled by an Arduino micro computer which will turn solar powered mining rigs on or off as the power is available.
I am fixing up an old popup camper with hard sides to serve as my mobile solar powered cryptocurrency mining farm. I am not allowed by the town to build another shed on my land so I have to use a trailer. The camper was not useful anymore as a camper since the roof was crushed in on us. So now it will be a perfect mobile mining farm.
I put in some of my first golf cart batteries from the motor home I had long ago. These batteries I have since been restoring on my Bedini motor.
I am using my Renogy MPPT solar charge controller between the batteries and the solar panels.
I got it all connected and hooked up my 3500 watt power inverter and turned on a cryptocurrency mining rig to test it out. But the power supply of the computer was buzzing so I turned it all off. This is a modified sine wave inverter.
I removed that and replaced it with a 1500 Watt Tiger Claw pure sine wave inverter which is doing the job nicely. I was able to fire up a cryptocurrency mining rig and run it on solar power for free. But it was late in the day and overcast so I shut it down soon after.
I will be adding more computers once I get the walls sealed off, ventilation in place and alarms installed.
