Natural Gas Powered Fuel Cells

A fuel cell is an electromechanical device that converts the chemical energy from the methane in natural gas into electricity through a chemical reaction with oxygen.

Not only are fuel cells quiet and reliable, with no moving parts and a durability of up to 20 years, but they convert natural gas directly into electricity with heat and a total system efficiency that can be much higher than other generation sources.

Business Benefits

  • Reduced operating costs - lowers grid electric use and overall electric costs.
  • Resiliency - Fast return to normal operations during a grid outage.
  • Business continuity - N+1 redundant or backup power source to critical non-life safety loads during a grid outage.
  • Islanding capability - continuous operations island mode upon a grid outage.
  • Microgrid capability - 24/7 resilient power to ensure operational integrity for critical public safety facilities. Fuel cells provide a 24/7/365 gas load.
  • No louder than piano music.
