Home Forums General Discussion off grid with Stirling Re: off grid with Stirling


Its not a Stirling engine but a TEG thermo Electric Generator.

This is really clever!

Sometimes smaller is beautiful and this product definitely wins a place on my short list of products to keep handy.

Friends have a wood stove and the heat is dispersed with a Cafamo brand fan which is powered by a TEG. Now this wood gas cooking stove makes its own electricity to power a faan that provide draft air flow to make the burning process efficient.

As most of you know I live in the far north where the sun doesn’t always shine for several months in winter.. Besides, in winter it is nicer to cook indoors. Even if you had a solar panel to power the fan it does not work after dark. This stove fills a need.
