We go onto tiered power billing and I just calculated that my bills are going to be in the $700 range!!! This is estimating a monthly usage of 4000KWH total, 3000 of that being mining.
By shutting down the other stuff my bill should be cut in half to $300.
How is everyone else dealing with there hydro?
It's still shocking for me sometimes when I get my bills. They went from $75 monthly to around $150 with just a 7850 and 7950 running taking around 450W. I expect the monthly bill will jump again to around $200/month with an extra 350W from 4x 750 Ti's.
I pay mine, and in the summer I open windows overnight to cool the "server room" off to around 10-15C, and then when the outdoor = ambient house temperature, I close all windows and seal it up. It gets to around 27C and then at night I open the windows again, it's a non-ending cycle, but at least I don't need to pay (that) much extra for AC, seeing as I rarely use it.
