    I don't pay my electricity bill so if I build a sterling engine going out into the -40 degree weather...

    I thought this type of thread always starts with "Tell me why this won't work!" and ends with someone posting the crackpot point rating system. :tongue:

    Well, folks at NASA's Glenn Research Center have designed and built Stirling engines and generating systems with linear induction generators. But one still needs a heat source. :wink:

    Of course, building one's own generator may potentially lead to low cost electricity, but it's not exactly free. There are upfront capital costs and some labor involved.

    Not only is the energy free, but my landlord would probably say I'm not conserving energy.

    I think I broke the physics.
