Andrea Rossi confirmed a couple of days ago that orders for the Ecat hot water plants are now being gathered by Leonardo Corporation, in what can be called the start of the commercialization process for the E-cat technology.
After the successful October 28 Bologna test of the one Mega-Watt plant powered by Cold Fusion technology, it has been announced that Rossi’s team has already made one delivery and is now working on its second order. The one Mega-Watt Ecat plant is valued at $2 million and is designed for business entities. The recent announcement from Leonardo Corporation pertains to the 10 Kilo-Watt heat plants designed for the homes. Each is priced at EUR400 for every thermal Kilo-Watt. This boils down to USD 5,400 for the 10 Kilo-Watt heat home unit.
As announced by Rossi, they are now collecting names of people or business entities interested to buy the energy catalyzer products. As soon as the number of prospective buyers reaches 10,000 names, mass production of the devices will start. He also disclosed that he is working with other Low Energy Nuclear Reaction scientists in this project and they will combine their list of prospective buyers together.
The sign-ups have already started and Rossi appeared in a radio interview where he cleared some of the E-cat certification issues. In the same interview, he also announced that the 10 kW plants will be made available in less than a year. The price of 10 kW thermal unit is pegged at $5,400. This means that use of the device will lower down the cost of heat to $0.54 / Watt. Rossi also claimed in the radio interview that the Ecat device will last for 20 years.
In a nutshell, these recent development just go to show that aside from the availability of the one Mega-Watt heat plant, the e-cat home units are also very soon to be available for the large public.
