Save Money on this Solar Powered Wood/Charcoal Stove – Super KalanFeb 13
Ever wonder how you can save gas on cooking?
Well, we’ve been using this one for more than 2 years now. Our solar powered wood/charcoal stove. We’ve been redesigning this for the nth time.. lol. Trying to make it easier on cleaning. The stove works perfectly fine using either wood or charcoal, and can cook real fast. What we are trying to do with the design of the stove is to make it look better and cleaning (removing of ashes) easier.
The stove has a blower that can be adjusted to how high or low you want the fire. The blower is powered by solar panel during daytime and solar charged deep cycle battery in the evening.
The model is our recent design, and will be changed next week . Pics were taken during a demo at a construction site.
Solar panel used – 5 watts only.
We used scrap woods for cooking. With LPG price so high these days, using this one have helped us a lot in saving money. About 4-5 pieces of cubed wood (2×2 inches) can cooked a dish (broth – like sinigang or nilaga). Woods used were free and if there is none we can always use charcoal which is a cheap alternative also.
