Khnemu Studio- Solar powered Kilns



Oh and they have solar panels which power the electric kilns!  Fantastic. Talk about Green Ceramics.  They got about 100 Kw while I was there. Check out the details on the link below:

The solar array produced over 100 kWh every day that John was at the studio. In total over 500 while he was visiting.

The picture of the kiln in his post is my gas kiln. Great photo but it is fueled by propane. I fire this kiln to cone 6 reduction

I use the solar energy to fire a Bailey Thermo Logic front loader and other smaller kilns. And it fuels all my gallery and studio lights and the rest of the equipment.

John . . . how do they convert solar into gas for that kiln in the last picture? Pretty awesome set up.
