The electricity produced from your Stirling CHP system can be used to power items like a refrigerator, lights, and small electronics. The deep cycle battery system can power a modern refrigerator for up to a couple days on a full charge. This is particularly useful in the event of a power outage, as your Stirling CHP system will allow you the versatility to power multiple items, as well as utilize the deep cycle batteries even when the Stirling CHP system is not burning fuel.
Currently, the Stirling CHP system can be powered by wood pellets; however, we are currently performing testing with small wood chips, saw dust, and rice husk.
Yes. The hopper that we have designed in conjunction with the Stirling CHP system automatically feeds fuel to the gasifier at the proper rate.
The Stirling CHP system requires a 5’ x 8’ heat and weather protected space located outside of your home. Heat, water, and electricity are carried to your dwelling via electronically controlled valves in ducts and tubes.
Once your water tank has been brought up to temperature, the heat is used to heat your home.
Approximately 1 hour.
The Stirling CHP system creates 24 kWh per day whereas a 5 kW Solar Power system produces approximately 20 kWh per day, on average, which is dependent upon average available local sunlight, of course.
Absolutely! The Stirling CHP system can operate off-grid while supplying power to items like your appliances and lights or converting its 1 kW AC output to DC electricity and storing it, utilizing a lead crystal battery bank similar to those used in solar powered systems.
Currently no. Until further beta testing is done, we currently require that our CHP system be used with a Victron Microgrid.
Of course! The our Stirling CHP system can be operated in conjunction with net metering.
Wood pellets are automatically fed into the gasifier from the fuel hopper. The fuel hopper needs to be refilled every 24 hours during continuous operation.
None! The Stirling CHP system produces biochar that currently must be removed every 12 hours. The biochar has been laboratory tested and has been proven to be an ideal soil amendment for horticulture and agriculture purposes.
Absolutely not! There are over 7000 units in operation world wide with no reported accidents.
