Free heat

    Ok slightly exaggerated but still, I want to get close.

    I have a 2,000 litre buffer tank new. Got it for feck all. It has a coil on it so I’ll be using solar (5 panels) to heat that part. I also have a solid fuel boiler that I will pipe into the buffer. This will be lit most days as I have access to very cheap fuel.

    I also want a third source heating this buffer. I was hoping to fit 6-8 small 600watt 12v wind turbines on the shed roof and have these heat 12v dc immersions directly. No battery’s or any fancy stuff.

    so my question is would I be better off with 1-2 large immersions and have the 6-8 turbines joined together it 6-8 small immersions with each immersion having its own turbine essentially?
