If it heated on one side and chilled on the otther side it creates electric curent and becomes a Seebeck generator or a TEG wich stands for thermo electric generator.
There are modules that are sold as TECs and TEGs with TEGs being more expensive because they are build to withstand higher temp up to 150 C while the ones made for cooling ,altough they can be used as generators perfectly,they last only up to plus 100 C temp.
They have an efficiency of just 10% and there are much better alternatives for such stove generators like the Stirling engines generators with 35% efficiency.
Now, if the energy is lost inside a house ,then you might not care about losses from poore efficiency.

I have a bio camp cooking stove that generates electricity to run the fan and the charging station. I wonder if it runs on the same principal, but on a smaller scale. It puts out quite a lot of heat for cooking just using small pieces of wood chips that I have an endless supply of (gather them after splitting wood each time, have bags of them.) You have sites to recommend on this stuff you talked about?

I have to do both.....log my property and some of the neighbor's in exchange for plowing his camp out during the winter (bartering is the way to go.)  Logging in early spring and fall, weeding in the summer, but since I use a ground cover between rows, I weed less....then green manure ground cover for garden area not planted chokes out the weeds anyway.

Pole...I did 111 quarts last year in an area of 12 by 24. No beans this, I alternate my crops. I also alternate the garden area, one part for veggies, the other for cover crop (green manure.)

You are not going to find many, if any, people who are politically aligned with you (besides myself.), notice the number of replies to date.  Most of the communities in here are not conservative like we are. I'm on the opposite side out east. I did years ago (2008) look at places and land in MT, but couldn't find anything worth while I could afford.
