Solar powered Steam Home Power Plant?

I'm working with a mechanical and chemical engineer that has invented a new engine process that works with very high efficiency using relatively low temperature steam, which would be generated by solar thermal panels and produce twice or more the efficiency of solar PV.

A 10 kW engine would provide enough power for the average American home (2500 Square Feet) and since steam generated from solar heat during the day can be stored in a pressurized insulated steam storage tank, electricity would be readily available at night as well.

 We are aiming to offer such systems in the next 12-24 months and believe the system will pay for itself out of electricity bill savings in under 24-36 months. With a working prototype proving that we can capture almost all of the energy in the steam (including the evaporation enthalpy) this patented new engine process may hold the key for vastly increasing the efficiency of solar power, and thus reducing it's cost. The age of personal power plants may be sooner than you suggest.
