The true cost of electric is about 1 1/2 cents per jigawatt. the rest is all taxes! LOL! I like your idea,need one myself. I burn wood to heat, probably ends up costing the same or more by the time you figure saws, chains, gas, damage to house (smoke,ashes, etc.), cost of woodburner,wear and tear on my bod, higher insurance because of owning a wood burner, etc.,etc. Probably costs more in the long run!! But I like spreadin' my $$ around, I just hate givin' it to the power companies! I recently just built myself a house and by the time I figure all the expense of chimneys, fireplaces, woodstoves alone, it will take me 20 years to break even. Your setup sounds cheap and worthwhile, I like it.
