Hi Jim. I have the same problem with dividing my time making a living, and time on projects that will hopefully change the way I make my living. I'm a diy guy, and hate the thought of buying something that I would enjoy making myself, as with the GEK power pallet, but I have been tinkering for a while now, and I don't have one operational yet. I would think that a 20kw would handle even some light industrial needs, if it ran 24/7. At $.14 per kwh, a 20kw unit would put out about $2000 worth of electricity, and in reality in my area, electricity quickly jumps to $.45 with that kind of usage, making the actual bill more like $5000. That is to say, if you are planning a grid system, and your electricity bill is less than $2-3000 per month, then a 20kw should be sufficient. Of course, all bets are off if you plan an offgrid system, or if you do not want your generator running 24/7. I figured a large hopper of chips and a continuous grid system would be the least maintenance. Running the exhaust through a radiator would make a simple heat exchanger to dry dogs, I would think.
Good talking to you, keep me posted. I'll do the same
