We study the optimization of the number of bits allocated by energy harvesting users for sending feedback to a common multiple-antenna access point (AP). The nodes need to distribute their feedback transmissions judiciously across time (and channel states) in order to maximize certain throughput goals. While the MISO channel capacity from the AP to a user is a strictly increasing function of the number of feedback bits sent by the user to the AP for providing channel state information, the energy consumption for sending this feedback is (assumed to be) directly proportional to the number of feedback bits. Considering long term throughput, the nodes need to adapt the number of bits of feedback to their energy harvesting profiles. I
