Battery & generator?

Battery for starting? A bicycle generator for keeping it charged? WTF?

As I read from the company's website, the unit was installed by the company on the customer's property and guaranteed to run for 5 years providing all energy to the customer's home without fuel or any input of any kind.

Why does it need a starting battery? Doesn't it run continuously? Why turn it off? O.K. Maybe for reboot or other malfunction restart. But even then, why would you use a generator, let alone a bicycle generator, when you could use a simple electronic battery charger off the mains supply.

The talk of a starting battery and bike generator doesn't instill confidence to me.
