Most of us use hot water throughout the day. The fuels used to heat this water are usually gas or electricity. Gas is drilled for, then processed and piped to your home, where you burn it to produce heat. Electricity is generated in a number of ways (gas, oil, coal, nuclear, wind, solar etc) then transmitted to your home. Both of these methods have financial costs for you, and environmental costs for everyone, as well as losing a lot of energy along the way. For those reasons I've researched methods that can be used domestically without great outlay. The most direct and convenient method I've found is the Storm Kettle (aka the Kelly Kettle), which forms the lower part of the image below (the aluminium part).
