I am baffled by the whole thing.
just got a cabin with 40 acres with abundant trees no power or water
My intention is to power a generator using a gasifier. Currently i have 2 gennys to use, 1. 5500w gas 2.
i want to add solar and wind as funds become avail.
I am wondering how much "battery" its gonna take to run the chest freezer, 2 computers, tv with x-box (randomly) and a couple of other household power vamps ie: alarm clocks and such
Is it more prudent to use propane instead of the gasifier to run the 5kw worth of 12hrs / day for the business.
the idea being that the gasifier has to be loaded and warmed before gas is produced "is this me just being lazy"
need to know how much propane is used for 24/7 operation versus pounds of wood. I heard that 2 lbs wood = 1 gal gas
