The Best Choice for the "Continuous off-grid Load" FeaturedWritten by Super User
Do you have a "Continuous DC Off-grid power Requirement" that is over 100w and runs 24x7x365?
If you do, then you know how expensive it is to provide off-grid power using TEGS (Thermal Electric Generators) or inefficient over sized traditional generators that require frequent maintenance site visits, utilize a great deal of fuel, and output high emissions and CO2. To make costs even higher, you may be paying CO2 taxes (if you are in Canada) and for liquid pipelines, might be trucking in fuel for your generators. Although it's always smart to make use solar power, for large continuous loads the solar configuration size would have to be too large. Solar power generation is questionable, great for small loads but can't standalone as a reliable solution for these "Load Profiles".
Would Fuel Cells be a Solution? Enter Acumentrics...
One specific fuel cell manufacturer can help for remote off-grid configurations requiring 100w to 3kw of continuous power. Acumentrics RP Family of 250w, 500w, 1000w, and 1500w Propane solid oxide fuel cell systems can provide economical continuous power for application devices like chemical injection pumps, compressors, cathodic protection systems, pipeline gas detection, SCADA communications, lighting and surveillance systems. These systems will dramatically reduce propane/natural gas/diesel use, CO2 emissions/taxes, site visits and logistics costs for your operations. They are very efficient with their use of propane or natural gas and this drives your savings and ROI.
No other fuel cell has a system lifetime from 5-8 years with only yearly annual maintenance. Remember, a year has 8766 hours in total, RP system's lifetime for a single fuel cell stack lives longer than a year. All other manufacturer's fuel cell systems with this kind of capacity have to be replaced after 3000 to 5000 hours. The TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of your outdoor off-grid configuration is minimized and your investment's ROI payback can be realized in a few years, driven by fuel savings, transportation costs, and reduced maintenance visits.
Even in tough economic conditions it makes sense to have a conversation regarding the use of the Acumentrics RP fuel cell generators for your off-grid power needs.
