Our fuel cell plants can be configured as microgrids, supplying power to the grid during normal operation and islanding to provide power in the event of a disturbance. This ensures a constant power supply for critical infrastructure.
Through our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), customers can add a fuel cell microgrid to their facility without the upfront investment. We offer ongoing service, support, and monitoring to assure your asset will continue to run at peak performance.
