the future. won't be long, those micro turbines will be residential, sure there will be various ones but, hell yeah. i'll do away with my electric bill, just have water and gas, get my hot water, power from turbine. they have pay back. save enough over time to pay for them selves, not like these POS gas packs. i have rental properties for yrs, and have had more problems with these POS units. PLEASE, i'll pay $5000 for a micro, with a good waranty, and a payback!!!
