I have considered this. I would make sure the generator was rated under 50hp and 37kw or you would have to get an air quality permit. I would just get a mobile unit and take the wheels off of it so it couldn't be stolen easy. You can imagine the demand for generators here right now?The 1" pipe is going to seriously limit gaseous fuel flow. Sounds as if a gaseous-powered generator is not in the cards. Another possibility is a 30-45KW diesel generator with its own sub-base tank. Fuel maintenance would be required, however. zuhnc
My plumber buddy wants to run 2" to it and see what it will do. Even if I can get 12-15kw out of it and surge 25kw for a few seconds I could still operate the shop. I'm invested this far........Plus it's already set up for the NG! The propane guy thought the NG was the best way to try also.
