this is what I am starting with,
this is the bottom
scratch that , that was the first try
its basically aluminum and peltier devices you can get here
one side cooler one hot (on woodstove) creates small current, I’ve got 12 thermoelectric (peltier devices) 40 mm x 40 mm which
were 3 $ each, so about 50 $ or more with the heat sinks.
now if this goes all day and night , even if its only an amp , that should give me 15 watts like a small solar panel but many more hours in a day like 300 watts for an hour total per day which will save me alot of gas, and it should last ten years, great for 12 volt systems, will let you know what the heck happens with this, ha ha next winter.
well now its quite a bit later, my little house won’t get my stove hot enough to make steady power, but I have some solar panels, which is awesome here is a great deal on panels click below and shop to support
