I don’t understand the outcome of the solution for a circuit with two voltage sources and an inductor

I have solved this circuit problem and I don’t really understand the result in terms of power for the two sources.

So for source one, it is clearly generating real and reactive power.
For source two, it is consuming, based on the current going out of the source.
The reactive power consuming reactive power.

The results shows the new power in the circuit is almost zero.
But the reactive power is not zero, the consumed is way more than the generation and that does not make sense.

Is there a problem with my math?

Thanks in advance for your help.
