Sorry. I checked, and the Fredonia Reactor has not been
mentioned in this newsgroup.

What's the efficiency difference between using an (emergency)
electric generator turbine running on NG and Bloom NG Fuel
Cell?  What is the cost differential for units which generate the
same sustained power outputs?

Home-sized turbines are very inefficient.  Gas turbines just don't scale down
well.  Virtually *anything* would be more efficient, .that's why they basically
don't exist


We can't know because the Bloom unit is still unobtanium.

In article


Apparently the maintainance on the BloomBoxs is negligible in the short
Term, when compared with ANY mechanical Power Generation Systems, both
short and long Term. I would expect that the BloomBox efficiency is
likely somewhat better in Total BTU's IN to Total Power Generated OUT,
due to that any mechanical Power Generation System System is less than
40%, in total BTU Effecentcy. We are still waiting for Official Data on
these issues...

Based on what?


Most fuel cells have high efficiency compared to mechanical devices, but the
question here is the efficiency of the Bloom fuel cell plus its associated fuel
reformer.


Exactly
