      Paul, 
      The fuel source of the hydrogen generator is a magnesium/aluminum fuel cell, that when added to "sea water" creates a reaction of heat and release of hydrogen gas. The vesell is a passive solar reactor, using the suns rays to help the "fusion" process. This process does not use methane (ch4), as the current carbon cartel usage by the DOE and their partners. We do not use any carbon source-hence this technology will be one of the "energy carriers of the future". Wouldn't it be wonderful if you pulled up to a hydrogen gas station and filled your tank with pure hydrogen to go thru that daily commute!

      Edward, what is the fuel source?

The heat generated keeps the water from your heater at a temp of about 100 degrees, circulating through the vessel in a heat exchanger. The hydrogen gas generated is stored in a propane storage tank and replaces the use of propane or natural gas.. At present, the technology is only suited for appliances using natural gas, as a onsite electrical generator using hydrogen as fuel is in the second stage of UL testing and won't be ready for market for awhile. Since a person is exploring changing his a/c unit, he can purchase a new ng unit and hook up the system. The process per therm is lower than ng, and unlike the uncertainty of future rates, the hydrogen technology will only see a modest inflation increase. this is the best way I have seen to get off the carbon diet that we are so controlled by. If you would like to see the unit in action, I have a sma!
      ll demo model that can better demo the process.

We address your 3 largest appliances that use the most electricity- a/c unit/heater. water heater and elctric stove for cooking. By reducing those appliances use of electricity you will see a dramatic savings on both greenhouse gases and utility bills. You will have a much faster payback than 10 years.
