How to Buy
Thank you for considering our product, we are excited to offer one of the world’s best systems and proud to stand behind it. We currently sell factory-direct, business-to-business as the system is designed for commercial and industrial applications and not suited for residential use.
To size a system we will need the following basic information:
- Electrical load type, AC or DC
- Load size in kilowatts, kW or KVA (Kilovolt-Ampere)
- Desired run time in hours
- Geographic location of where the system will be used
- A great many features are standard but the system is highly customizable and can easily match your application
Please use our Contact page to write us and we will be happy to help you. Or please call us at the number on that page.
A typical system includes the fuel cell generator and at least one fuel cabinet containing cylinders of compressed hydrogen gas. How long the generator produces power is simply a function of how much fuel capacity is installed. Longer run times will require additional fuel cabinets. Refueling the system is accomplished by changing cylinders or through the single point refueling port from a commercial delivery truck. Refueling the system is the customer’s responsibility and we can help you with finding a vendor to support you.
Liquid fueled systems allow the use of a mixture of methanol and pure water as fuel. This system replaces the fuel cabinet of hydrogen gas cylinders and offers greatly extended run times. The liquid fuel systems are available in OSP (outside plant) cabinets or as integrated systems in a standard ISO shipping container. Baseload applications will typically use industry standard tanks or easily fabricated tanks tailored to a specific size. Custom systems can be developed which use refrigerant or agricultural ammonia as fuel.
Federal Tax Credit
In the United States there is a federal investment tax credit currently in place for a business purchasing a fuel cell that expires on December 31, 2016. The credit is calculated at either: 30% of the total cost of the fuel cell units or up to $3,000 per kW which ever amount is lower. It may be claimed the year the fuel cell is placed in service and taxpayers subject to Alternative Minimum Tax calculations are also entitled to the credit. The taxpayer is entitled to subtract the amount of the credit from their federal tax liability on an dollar-for-dollar basis.
Credit example calculations:
- (Total price of system) X (30%) = Credit amount in dollars
- System power output in kW (kilowatts) X ($3,000) = Credit amount in dollars
- Credit allowed to be claimed is the lowest amount.
Certain states have credits, please check the FAQ links page for a tracking website of federal and state incentives. Please consult your tax adviser for tax calculations and regulations.
