As cryptocurrencies become more popular, more and more people are starting to mine them, and some are adopting unconventional methods.
Now, a miner has installed an off-grid solar array to power his bitcoin (BTC) mining business and share the findings of his findings.

Peter Ejid, also known as AZ Hodl, wanted to demonstrate the efficiency and benefit of using solar energy instead of relying on the traditional power grid to reduce the cost of a bitcoin mining operation at home. On March 16, Ejid described the entire process on his website.
Mr. Egyed’s power rating was 0.08 kWh on weekdays from 0.05 kWh to 0.05 kWh at all other times. Bitcoin was looking for alternative ways to mine in less time to reduce its cost and also helped balance the grid demand by “selling” it to the utility.

With the initial results, the bitcoin miner explained the beginning of his experiment, which required some tweaking to work as he intended: “I gained 426k sat (0.00426048 bitcoin) in the last 7 days when I used 62 more. KWh per day (in the middle of the estimated billing cycle) ”
In other words, according to CoinMarketCap data, when it comes to Bitcoin prices, it has gained about $ 174 in a week.
