I bought new solar panels, and I want to get some of them up to play with powering my data center from the sun.

Even just 1$ a month, comes out to the same as Binge-watching like 400+ of me Videos every month.

My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on. I have this house, it is 168 Square Meters / 1808.3ft² and it is full, of half-finished projects.

I love working with heating, insulation, Servers, computers, Datacenter, green power, alternative energy, solar, wind and more. It all costs, but I’m trying to get the most out of my money, and my time.

  1. When you get your new breakers and hook things up in the basement can you show us how you do the hook up and what breakers you are using. Finding DC rated breakers that aren't really expensive is proving difficult

  2. I personally don't think you are going to run your data center for very long with solar for a few reasons: 1. Solar has gotten better and more efficient in the past 7ish years, but that's going from like 10% efficiency to %15 or 19,% nowhere near enough to generate enough power for all of your power hungary servers. 2. Your UPS shown in the last video is super sketchy. I wouldn't trust that thing to run overnight, or at all for that matter. You can't just use a random rackmount ups with all those batteries with that much power draw. 3. How much money are you spending on all this extra equipment? Include things like the solar panels, the "UPS", and a new house because the UPS will probably burn your current one to the ground. Then consider how long you could run your data center off grid power with that amount of money. I can't help but wonder 2 things: Will this ultimately be worth it and will your house burn down?

  3. I like the solar panel project! I kind of wish I could do this but power here is much less expensive so with my usage, it would take decades to pay for itself ($0.13 USD per kwh). Also there are a lot of politics to sort through… I don't know what the laws are like there in Denmark or maybe more rural areas, but where I live if you don't have a company install your panels and/or you don't get a permit and get inspections if there was a fire (even if not solar panel's fault) the home owner's insurance company will likely try to blame the solar panels and deny the claim.

  4. Love your work ethic! Glad you painted the tin roof. It will make the structure last a lot longer. A good roof is the best investment for longevity. Exciting to watch this project come to fruition. You are quite the acrobat. Be safe!
