Rob, this is so true - I once had a visit from the local police officer
after FLIR readings / them being notified by Eandis (local power grid
management co).

I was lucky enough to have a flat which had "bills included", so I ended up
with three rows of Ikea book racks with main boards stuffed with AMD GPUs.
It became a rather interesting setup, since I piggy-backed more than one
main board on heavy duty ATX PSUs (the GPUs had their own power lines). The
cluster required a special start-up strategy since everything booted off of
NFS - the set-up was implemented in 2011, and back then there was a
flooding in Thailand, causing a huge shortage of hard drives.

Cooling was a real issue, during winter I could cool using snow from
outside and icy winds by keeping windows open, but during summer I ran on
1/3rd capacity with a new machine spinning up if another one overheated and
shut down, allowing it to cool down.

In our area if you are listed as a residence yet consume too much
electricity then you may notice you're being monitored by the police
because of suspicion of using grow lights in your basement to grow
marijuana.

We are fortunately supplied by a cooperative so our power is about 13
cents/KWH including all taxes and service fees.
