I think this should be put in the rumor category for now, but I received the following comment from ‘Francesco CH’ today — someone who hasn’t commented here in quite a while, but in the past has proved to be quite a reliable source of information regarding the E-Cat (once when I asked Rossi about one of his statements, Rossi said Francesco CH was very well informed):
TO FRANK ACLAND: THE FIRST US PLANT HAS ALREADY BEEN ACTIVATED. I.E. IT IS WORKING RIGHT NOW
It does not surprise me at all to hear that the plant is working. It has been almost two months since it was shipped to the United States. If there were no mishaps in transit it should have been relatively simple to get it installed. Now we need to wait for some kind of official confirmarion.
