Tested. Proven. Rugged. Reliable.
- Highly Flexible
Built with a modular design, a variety of building blocks offer solutions for power requirements scaling from 50W up to 20kW or even higher. This allows customers to purchase the back-up energy they need now and grow as requirements change in the future, whether the equipment is located at ground level or on a rooftop. ReliOn products offer more than 190 possible configurations ensuring there’s a solution to nearly all power challenges.
- Lower Cost of Ownership
Simple maintenance and fewer site visits mean up to 84% lower operational costs when compared to combustion generators. ReliOn’s robust design eliminates the need for quarterly site maintenance visits, keeping personnel focused on other critical tasks.
- Proven Reliability
Third-party verified field reliability of 99.6%
- Remote monitoring
Using advanced control software with internet access lets the customer check the performance and health of the fuel cells from anywhere in the world, even the convenience of a home office.
- Environmentally hardened
ReliOn products operate in some of the harshest weather conditions, ranging from -40°F to 122°F. Certification testing has confirmed ReliOn fuel cell capabilities through wind-driven rain, hot and cold, brush fire and earthquake conditions. More importantly, they reliably perform over and over during real world conditions.
- Clean Power
ReliOn fuel cells are a part of many well-planned corporate sustainability programs. Clean, zero-emissions operation means not having to address fuel spill containment and air quality reporting requirements. Low heat and noise allow for placement in environmentally sensitive locations including neighborhoods and national parks.
It’s time to take another look at hydrogen fuel cells for stationary power, because a backup power choice is about more than meeting the requirements of a regulation—reliable power is about meeting corporate or agency objectives, whether those revolve around protecting people’s lives or providing the ability for others to phone home.
Sensible, market-based solutions win out over one-size-fits-all units every time. That’s the beauty of Plug Power’s ReliOn hydrogen fuel cell—it offers a solution that makes sense economically, operationally and environmentally.
