Altergy Fuel Cells Replace Batteries in Caribbean Deployment

Altergy’s Freedom Power™ Systems Successfully Up and Running for a Major Regional Telecom Customer Before Hurricane Season

Altergy is pleased to announce that it has delivered and deployed its Freedom Power Systems to a telecom customer in the Caribbean ahead of the hurricane season, as planned.  These 5kW systems are replacing batteries as the backup power source and in this case utilize a methanol reformer to provide the hydrogen fuel for the fuel cell and provide more than 100 hours of backup power runtime on a single fuel fill up.

This island customer is not immune to the type of power outages that disrupt communications capability around the world but they have the added threat of frequent hurricanes which have the potential to disrupt power for days at a time. Altergy’s fuel cell systems bridge these interruptions assuring customers the continuous communications capability they desire.

Altergy’s zero emission electrical power generators replace yesterday’s technology, batteries and generators, and are providing backup power to applications worldwide.   They provide power at point of use, while providing high reliability, long runtime, a small footprint, low weight, long life, low maintenance, and low noise.  Most importantly, they offer the lowest up front capital cost and lowest total cost of ownership over traditional back up power solutions.
