About FuelCell Energy

Fuel cells produce base load electricity where commercial and industrial customers face cost, reliability, security or environmental issues with their existing energy supplies. Emerging state, federal and international regulations to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions consider fuel cell power plants in the same environmentally friendly category as wind and solar energy sources — with the added advantages of running 24 hours a day and the capacity to be installed where wind turbines or solar panels often cannot.
