Typical simple payback requirements for these projects are in the seven to ten year range. Therefore the construction cost of the system divided by the net annual income stream (annual dollar value of natural gas displaced by landfill gas minus annual operation and maintenance costs for the LFG system) would be in the range of seven to ten years.
Other LFG systems have been installed directly by end users (and example would be Ford Motor Company). Typically industrial users have somewhat more stringent simple payback requirements.

But to do so it would have to be less expensive to install than the engines that are typically used (an existing well proven technology) or it must offer some other clear advantage. My admittedly limited experience in looking at fuel cell applications would lead me to believe that it would not, unless Bloom has some new breakthrough technology.
