I'm planning and wanting suggestions. Currently I have a 900watt solar system that isn't hooked up (it was off the grid but house now on electric) I'm having that done very soon, along with upgrading it to a larger production to cover all electrical costs. Plan on adding about 6kw. I have about 2700 SF, about half and half on each level. Two inoperable wood stoves on each level. I have a propane boiler in my basement that sits next to my solar collector tank. The solar tank assists the gas hot water and boiler by preheating water for them. It's also hooked to my in-floor radiant heat, but isn't large enough to really do much with that. This is my plan: New medium sized EPA (non-cat) wood stove for my upstairs floor immediately. Ordered one...on its way! Over winter will install 6kw of solar panel to give me 7kw system total for net metering. Will have credit by end of first 12 months and use that excess for oil-radiant space heaters as-needed in the winter (bathrooms and where my wife wants one). Over winter I'll make a greenhouse (about 10 x 15) and have a corner section of it for a barrel wood stove (that corner will be paneled with aluminum instead of plastic, and likely have heat shields on the sides facing the plants). I'll install copper coils on inside and outside of stove (wrapping the outside with heat shield) and put a solar-powered blower fan on it too. Both the hot water and forced air will flow beside my lower growing beds for heating, and then travel into the downstairs for heat, and radiate upwards too. When it comes time to replace my gas boiler, I'll see what is new and improved to do that with. Likely a small wood furnace, unsure if outside or inside. If outside I may place a hot storage tank where the gas boiler now sits. I have about 5' x 8' of space there, with the solar tank right next to it. I will likely keep my hot water heater until it goes, and then replace with on-demand electrical unit since I have solar production. Suggestions? I need to find 2 metal barrels to make my stove with a Vogelzang kit. Any suggestions?
