Insist on Commercial and Residential Fuel Cells
In the face of blackouts, fires, and other natural disasters, customers experience first-hand the need to decouple their reliance on the utility companies, to protect against outages, and to ensure resiliency for homes and businesses. Traditional backup generators have been described as a dirtier, less safe, and expensive solution. Solar, even if paired with batteries, does not guarantee protection. Microgrid energy systems which utilize Fuel Cells provide reliable resiliency.

Backup generators have been linked to air quality concerns, health risks, and pose a fire safety challenges themselves.
Without diligent, continuous maintenance and a large supply of fuel, emergency generators lack the reliability required in disasters.
Backup generators and solar are not always the most efficient solution for every customer. Customers need to integrate a variety of tech.
Understanding CHP Generation
Combined Heat and Power units (CHP) generate power onsite, using natural gas. Unlike normal generators, CHP and Fuel Cells provide a consistent and reliable flow of energy to buildings while emitting substantially less pollutants. CHP units are not affected by clouds or power outages, can be utilized to produce free heat for domestic and commercial use. Through avoiding transmission line inefficiencies, CHPs are generally are substantially more carbon friendly than traditional utility power.
