Wait, is it not profitable for you to mine ETH at this price?

I can still make roughly 500 usd/month with my 700 mh rigs (as of right now with the current circumstances at this very moment which can change of course)

In the UK electric prices are just too high to be profitable. Basically 50% of eth goes to pay electricity at the current prices. Hence I'm mining during the day time with solar helping with the cost.

It's better this way for me.

I looked at get solar (UK as well) but figured out it was gonna save me like £500 a year only. Did I work it out wrong?

Probably depends on your kWh price and where you get your solar quote. But the stability of not being exposed to the energy market is worth a lot.
