Our view

The product claims to show you how to build a fully functioning electricity generator, utilizing the power of the sun (see below for a full rundown of how the Stirling technology works). According to the producers, this will provide up to 12 times as much power as standard photovoltaic (PV) solar panels at a fraction of the cost. The price of the product is certainly much less expensive than having a solar panel built. PV solar panels can cost up to $30,000 for a standard home and it usually takes a number of years before savings can be made. In contrast the Solar Stirling Plant offers an alternative that can apparently be built for less than $100 (while not unrealistic for those with know-how and access to the right tools, typically, other products of this nature recommend a budget of around $200).

Solar Stirling Plant

The Solar Stirling Plant uses parabolic mirrors to focus the suns energy on a ‘conversion unit’. See below for an explanation of the technology.

One of the product’s most interesting features is the claim that it works up to 12 times more efficiently than standard PV solar panels. The technology that allows this concentrates the rays of the sun in a smaller area. This also avoids having to spread out a series of solar panels across the roof of your property. The technology behind the Solar Stirling Plant has been around since the early 19th century, so it is certainly not untested. Recently a Swedish energy technology company, Cleanenergy AB, opened a solar power plant in China using a system based on the same concept. The Swedish company’s system has a higher solar-to-electricity conversion rate than PV technologies and requires less sunshine in order to produce more power.

The reviews of this product were generally favorable, with most people saying that they were able to build one of the products within a few days and bought the necessary materials from their local hardware store. According to the company anyone can build this product and I didn’t see anyone disagreeing with that. The makers claim that you can use the product to generate 40 percent of your household’s energy usage. Although difficult to confirm because power usage varies over the course of the year, one reviewer has a pre-existing solar panel, which offers a side-by-side comparison. He estimated that his new plant was generating 7 times as much electricity. Whether you can generate enough power to cover 40 – 60 percent of your home’s energy needs is hard to know, although the investment required is relatively low and you should be able to make savings. 

Verdict

This product is suitable for homeowners hoping to save on their energy bills. Given the size of this info pack, one could realistically assess most of the material, and indeed test it, within the 60-day money back window… So risk is limited.

How does it work?

Given some of the scepticism surrounding this type of technology it’s worth delving into the science and background of ‘Stirling Engines’…

The brainchild of Scottish inventor Doctor Robert Stirling, the system was originally conceived in the early 19th century as an alternative to steam engines (using internal combustion technology, as many engines still do today).  Despite early promise, the system failed to gain a real foothold over the next two centuries. Today, its main application, on a commercial level, is on submarines and boats, where sound and safety are important (more on this below).

Unlike an internal combustion engine, the gasses within the Stirling engine never leave, i.e. there is no exhaust or venting of pressure. This ‘closed-cycle’ system is one of the reasons why this type of engine is almost silent, and, of course, incredibly environmentally friendly (dependent on the fuel you choose). Other benefits include versatility of fuel (fossil fuel, biomass, or solar) and relative safety vs. an internal combustion engine, which involves the ventilation of high-pressured gasses and controlled explosions.

In the case of the Solar Stirling Plant, parabolic mirrors are used to focus the suns energy onto the Stirling Engine, looking much like a satellite dish (where a dish is used to focus radio waves onto a receiver). If you’ve ever used a magnifying glass to focus the sun’s energy, you’ll know how powerful this system can be… The makers of the Solar Stirling Plant claim it can generate 12x more power than a regular solar panel (unverified), using less space and at a lower cost (because conventional panels rely on collecting the sun’s energy over a large surface energy, they generally take up more space and cost more money).

So getting back to the technology, the parabolic dishes focus the suns rays on the ‘conversion unit’ (the Stirling Engine). Alternatively heating and cooling the gasses inside (in this case, hydrogen), the fluctuating pressure is used to drive the pistons up and down, causing the crankshaft to turn the generator and create electricity!

Have your say.

Some good points here and decent explanation of how the technology behind it actually works. Like with many products of this nature, I think it’s important not to get too caught up in the sales video. You’re not going to learn how to power your house overnight… Getting the most from this product requires time and dedication.

this does not include the price of the stirling motor/generator, where do we purchase the motor generator?

Please answer Bear Spirit Walking's question,'where do we purchase the stirling plant generator?

Some good information.... But no details of mounting of the Dish and Stirling Motor, and no energy rating for the Motor...Like how many Watts? and worst of all! No tracking without which the whole thing will not work! All in all though, The information is interesting and the bonuses also make interesting reading! This will not give you freedom from the Grid but it will set you on the path..... Is it worth the Money? Yes if you're not incensed by rage at not getting what was promised!

Green energy just makes sense in this day and age. Should damage be done to the grid itself, individual solar solutions would make dealing with the outcome easier because there is less dependence on the infrastructure. http://www.saveonpower.net/

I am trying to pay for the download through my VISA debit card, but there is some error which is occurring. I have tried my 2 VISA debit cards, but having same problem. I am from India & I have been using my VISA cards for other online purchase which are successful. My email address is hemantdhongade@rediffmail.com. Please advice me the solution, so as I can purchase.

It seems like this whole page was written by the company themselves. This does not sound like a real "review".

This 'review' isn't at all what I was hoping to find, it is as though the company did their own review and the link above does nothing at all to help respond to my questions, this is the same video I just watched which led me to seek out more information... so no more chasing my tail on the internet, if anyone at all has purchased this and has any reviews on it please share. Cheers.

I have done some research to see if this is a scam or not. I am an electrical engineer and have have built my own solar panels and system to boot... so I speak from personal experience. From a purely engineering standpoint this company seems to have found a way to bypass what is physically possible. They claim 12 times the power generated by a solar electric system but since they give no comparison details I have to assume they are using the same "footprint" (square footage of area available to the reflector as would be available to a panel.) The reflector only focuses the sunlight, it does not increase the energy magically. Let's say the amount of energy is, for argument's sake, 100 watts. Solar cells at best only convert 20% of the light to electricity, so you would get 20 watts out of the panel. They claim 12 times more hmmm... that means 240 watts. Amazing --- their Sterling engine (not even including the loss of efficiency of running an electrical generator off the engine to get the electrical power) somehow manages to put out almost 2 and a half times as much power as is put into it!!! To operate at 100% efficiency (not possible) for their claim to be true, would require a solar panel that was only about 8% efficient -- none are anywhere near that bad!

Brian, I need to pick your brain my friend! I so desperately want to add solar power here because as you know, I suck up a TON and need help! I've researched it some but find it daunting & don't know who or what to trust...which you make clear here why!
