It would cost a lot of money to get one that really powered a house. I would think the cost could go way down if a company could mass produce some, but until then it is very expensive. If I remember correctly I found a company that made them, and would sell one for 100k (I can't remember how big it was... 5-15 hp I think).
For me, I think it will be less expensive to use syn-gas to power a generator, but I have not done that project yet.

Would they work, or is there a cheaper place to find used ones?
