Hybrid Solar, Fuel Cell and Battery Bank Configurations FeaturedWritten by Super User
Hybrid remote power systems include solar, battery, and fuel cell components to minimize site visits and maximizes the reliability of off-grid power. In most cases, if solar can be used, we promote the use of solar modules as 'range extenders' coupled with fuel cell battery chargers and our customer's battery banks to reduce fuel use and increase fuel cell lifetimes. For covert surveillance applications, where solar power can't be used, we use standalone fuel cell solutions for mission & data critical applications. Data critical refers to both narrow and broadband data or video where our customers can't afford downtime and data loss. Many times data loss equates to reduced security and law enforcement experiencing lost video surveillance. During certain months of the year reliable solar power generation could be a problem in specific states like AK, Portland, etc so fuel cell battery chargers provide the reliable on-demand power needed to keep application devices running unattended for months at a time without maintenance associated with these configurations. Longer application runtimes in remote off-grid locations mean less travel expenses and a lower TCO.
