* Model C units do not have natural gas or electrical efficiency data.

Disclaimer

Electrical efficiency calculations include fuel cell idle time (such as when the fuel cell is awaiting the return to operation of the utility grid, etc.). If values were adjusted for idle time, fuel cell electrical efficiencies would be higher. ONSI fuel cells passed DoD Fuel Cell Program electrical efficiency criteria during unit acceptance tests (range = 33.5% to 37.2%, Higher Heating Value). Availability values are not adjusted for times when the fuel cell was down for extended periods unrelated to typical fuel cell operation (delays in maintenance personnel response, site operating conditions, etc.). Adjusting for these times would result in higher availability values.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
