Who cares how it generates 120 volts as long as it does that - all good to the betterment of all people that will benefit in the area, but if it does falter then the water inside the steam engine is not hot enough. I have studied how power stations work and the the thing that turns the generator is the steam engine. I still thing coal is the best fuel if all the filters are in place so only water vapours leave the stalks. It can be done I know.
~~whoever thought up biomoss as fuel is going to leave big gaping holes on the ground all over the north. ALAS!
