    Have almost finished my rebuild of the generator which used to be at my office and is now at home. Got a nice stainless steel tank, and heavy metal for the gasifier. Now just looking for a source of wood waste from landscaping, tree trimming and such as all my friends in the business seem to have moven out of south Florida and I have given the contracts and most equipment to my employees and have gotten out of the maintenance business, after dealing with frivolous lawsuits. I need new contacts for yard waste as my hobby is in environmental/ alternative energy and it would be nice to find someone willing to drop of logs or wood chips to see just how long I can run this system before breakdown. Also looking for a new place to move to so if anyone knows of an area that's affordable and where people tend to be friendly and speak English, I am open to suggestions!

    english speaking i would think anywhere would be better than miami i only know one guy here in ohio who is from cuba and speaks very little english he moved here a few years ago from miami, ohio is real pretty spring,summer,and fall the people are nice but winter sucks might be good for your alternative energy source. good luck.

    Explain this system more? Is this like a furnace/turbine deal or something?

    It uses a regular gasoline engine and a home made gasifier. Burn wood with low oxygen, filter the gasses produced and suck it right intot he intake. Simple technology, are you interested in building one?
