Altergy’s New Freedom Power™ Nacelle Breaks Price Barrier Associated with Fuel Cells

Altergy, the leading producer of fuel cells for telecom backup power, is pleased to introduce its new Freedom Power Nacelle, a small, lightweight packaging of its rugged, reliable, and proven fuel cell power system.

The Nacelle dramatically decreases system footprint and volume each about 47%, the system weight by 48% and the price of the fuel cell system by more than 26%, while providing numerous mounting options.

Altergy’s clean and green Freedom Power Systems eliminate costly batteries, battery maintenance, battery replacements, generators, and other operational costs and environmental issues while providing long backup power runtimes. They assure continuous communications capability.

“The Freedom Power Nacelle shares Altergy’s rich history of telecom reliability, performance and durability with more than 8.3 million watts deployed and more than 32 million operating hours,” says Altergy CEO Eric S. Mettler. “While customers have already benefited from the more modern, reliable, and green features offered by Altergy’s Freedom Power systems, the new Nacelle breaks the final barrier to wide scale adoption: Cost.”

The Freedom Power Nacelle is available in 1kW, 2.5kW and 5kW variants and provides numerous benefits and features:

  • Low initial Capital Cost
  • Low maintenance and operating costs
  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Long runtime solution and convertible to unlimited runtime via Altergy Freedom Fuel™ service
  • Smallest footprint, highest power density
  • Light weight – enabling rooftop applications
  • Long product life
  • Mounts anywhere
  • Supports remote monitoring and reporting
  • Provides low noise signature
