I'm brand new to AP but have been reading and, hopefully, studying for about a year or so. During that time, I knew I wanted to have tilapia as my fish, but am fairly sure I won't be able to sustain…Continue
Rick - how is the power co-generation coming along? I have often thought of using a string of wire, dissimilar metal, junctions laid against a hot source to generate electricity directly. A combination of series/parallel circuits to get the voltage/amperage needed. And I also want to lay a grid of black poly tubing in the roof area, at least over the fish tank (shade), to re-absorb the rising heat as well as the solar heat.
Happy New Year!
I have been working on my new greenhouse. 26'w x 24'long. It is coming along. We roll the trusses tomorrow. We will have to begin building the heating system soon, but still narrowing down the design options there. Hope all is well and look forward to hearing from you.
Been working away on this system. Green house is getting closer to completion too. We have decided on a steam engine for power generation. The stirling engine just doesnt have quite the effeciency we need. Although, Stirling technologies has made a deal in China to produce their engine, so something should be on the market in a year or two.
We are currently working on the pellet fired boiler, that is probably the major hurdle, it poses the greatest risks. But I think we have a good idea what we need so it shouldnt take too much more R&D. I will keep you posted.
