Interest in renewable power generation, and solar power in particular, is growing quickly in the United States in both the residential and utility markets. Unfortunately, when the sun is not shining, in inclement weather or at night, solar can be a limited power resource. Fuel cells are the perfect partner, able to generate supplemental power if solar resources are low during the day, or by providing electricity at night.

A synergy between the two technologies is further emphasized when using solar electrolysis to generate 100% renewable hydrogen that can be used for onsite fuel cell power generation or fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) fueling.
