The generator fuel cost is the annual cost of fueling the generator. HOMER calculates this value by multiplying the fuel price by the amount of fuel used by the generator in one year.

If the generator burns biogas, either as its primary fuel or cofired with another fuel, HOMER includes the biomass cost in the generator fuel cost. The biomass cost is equal to the amount of biomass feedstock consumed over a year multiplied by the price of biomass.
