I'm writing concerning the profitability of running a 5mwh generator
set on either ethanol or hydrogen. Obviously, I'm a Newbie and live
in the UK.

Now, excluding the cost of purchasing a conventional diesel generator and having it converted to run other either fuel, plus the fuel itself, does anyone know the amount of income such a contraption could generate over a year?

I've worked out that could be:

5,000 kwh @ 0.4pence x 24 hrs x 365 days = £1,752,000, or thereabouts (excluding downtime). Now I know these generators produce power in the 4000v to 11000v range. Question: does this mean that I can add to the above equation (for example): 6000v divided by 240v = 25 x the figure given above (£1,752,000)?

In other words: I know these large diesel generators produce a huge amount of wattage (say 5mwh) or high voltage (upwards of 11000v), but can they produce both?
