Dan's 57kWh Build
#11
I was thinking more of a small pellet stove to to put in a central room to reduce the power consumed by your GSHP.
Something like this: http://www.woodpelletstove.co.uk/content...llet-stove
It should cost no more than 2~3k. Of course, this might require near daily manual refilling, but will still be much less hassle than burning logs of wood.

Also, note that all of Tim's calculations are based on monthly averages. You have to consider the possibility of having a perhaps 2 week long blizzard, during which even a 30kWp PV array will produce nothing. Once you run the batteries dry, not even the pellet stove will work. Also, a supersized PV is likely prohibitively expensive and will be a waste of money and resources the rest of the year.

My suggestion would be to install a large-ish, but still reasonable PV array.
Keep an eye on the weather forecast and turn on the wood/pellets/gas stove on consecutive cloudy days to supplement the GSHP and thus reduce battery drain.
And have a diesel generator (test before season; drain & store after season; use/give away old fuel) to provide emergency powerwall charging. I believe a low voltage auto-start can be implemented fairly easily. You'll want to have a detached generator shed for safety and noise reduction.
