We know that Andrea Rossi’s plan is not to sell E-Cat plants to customers, but to retain ownership and sell heat. But here is a Q&A that gives us an idea of how he values his technology.

Dear Dr Rossi,
Can you tell us the price of the 40 MW plant?

The Client will pay nothing for the plant, because it will remain of our property and the Client will pay only the heat. Should it be for sale its price would be 20 million $, but for the time being we are not going to sell.
That puts an industrial E-Cat plant at $500,000 per MW. We don’t know how much it will cost to build these plants, it will likely to be more expensive in the beginning until economies of scale are improved if he can get mass production off the ground. Since Rossi is not selling plants outright, and only selling heat once it is used, there will be a lot of upfront investment required for Leonardo. They will only be able to make money once the plants are up and running well, and customers are paying their bills.
