Question

Jeff Brewer, via Facebook asked:

What size of generating station do you need to be working with in order for the system like the one you were discussing to be cost effective?

Answer

Andrew -   I would say that's an open question at the moment.  If I was to really go out on a limb I would say that a megawatt would be the point at which you would get a cost-effective system.
