Phase 2 develop renewable energy to heat the house.

Phase2a, Thermal store and small array.

  • Build a 65kwh (221,835Btu) thermal store.
  • Build a 4 panel solar panel system (10.44 Sq Mt collector area).
  • Build and develop the control system.

Phase2b, Oil boiler.

  • Incorporate the oil boiler into the system.
  • Incorporate the thermal store into the house heating system.

Phase2c, Second array.

  • Build a 8 panel solar array (20.88 Sq Mt collector area)..

Phase2d, Small wind turbine.

  • Finish building the 8ft Dia 1.5kw wind turbine.
  • Finish building the turbine tower.
  • Incorporate the turbine into the heating system.

Phase2e, Fit low temperature radiators

  • Fit low temperature radiators in the house each with their own temperature control valve.

Phase2e, Split the house heating system

  • Split the house heating system away from the domestic hot water system.

Phase2f, Dump the energy from the turbine.

  • Build a control system to produce 240v when the thermal store is up to temp.
  • Dump this energy into the national grid, when not required in the house.

Phase2g, Design and build a “Stirling engine”

  • Design and build a “Stirling engine” to take any excess heat from the thermal store and produce electrical power from the heat.
  • Build a control system to dump any spare electrical energy into the grid.

Phase2h, Large wind turbine.

·        Build a 17Ft Dia wind turbine (5 to 7.5kw).

·        I already have the €400 worth of magnets required for this turbine.
