By employing a novel technique we have measured the thermoelectric Onsager coefficient L12 in the current carrying charge-density wave state of TaS3 and K0.3MoO3. The electric field dependence of the charge-density wave Peltier coefficient in the nonlinear conductivity regime is given by IICDW=T[c1 (T)+c2 (T) E]. At electric fields E ≫ ET the heat carried is proportional to the Joule heat generated by the translational motion of the condensate. The implications of this result are discussed.
