Here’s a question and answer from the Journal of Nuclear Physics that gives a ballpark figure about how Leonardo is planning to sell the E-Cat SKL for once it is available.

Dear Dr. Rossi,
I understand that it is difficult to estimate prices if serial production is not yet running, nevertheless I will ask:
By a very rough estimate, do You hope that the sales price for E-Cat SKL will be below 350 USD/kW?

It will depend on the scale. For a production of million of units, the answer would be yes.
So if we guess that the E-Cat SKL is rated at 5 kW, it would cost a maximum cost of $1750 per unit, which I think would be an extremely attractive and competitive price.
Gasoline generators of 5 kW cost in the range of around $500-$2000 each, depending on the model and features. And of course they require gasoline to operate.
There are all-electric portable power stations, which are large battery packs, on the market which can be charged via solar or mains electricity. Currently these run in the range of around $1000 per kW.
If the SKL works safely and reliably, I don’t think Rossi would have any trouble at all in getting a million orders at the range he is talking of.
