This topic is slightly related to this one, with some extra details.
I would like to go off-grid and therefore buy a PV kit. I can see that the prices for PV systems with a power of +3kW are very high, so I was thinking how much I can get from a 300-500W system, which is way cheaper. The fridge, the PC, and other households can easily work with such a power if stored in batteries, but the problem is the stove.
My current stove has a power between 1 and 2 kW, which means that I would need to have this instant power from the PV or have it stored in some batteries. This instant power is of course not available, but I can get more batteries to store let's say at least 1-2kWh of energy, which also costs a lot.
The only thing that I have in mind is to find a stove/oven that has a low power (under 300W). Is the crock pot the only option for this? I would like to use the stove/oven for cooking different dishes, including frying and baking. Any idea if a "standard" 1-2kW oven can be modified to work with lower power? Or does any of you have any other idea how to cook with such a little power?
