Thanks Crispin, These are valuable thoughts. .... Im also thinking that
there would also be such price mechanisms on the fuel side. ... that is the
payment could be arranged in the fuel purchases instead to pay for the
stove in increments.

There was another arrangement that the payment could be in terms of carbon
buy backs from the char making stoves.
