September 14, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Fuel cell systems provider ReliOn was happy to report that one of the company’s systems in Florida kept working during the most extreme conditions of Hurricane Frances. The Independence 1000 fuel cell is installed at a telecommunication site, which was in the central path of the storm. When primary power was knocked out by the hurricane, the fuel cell solution powered the site for another twenty-two hours. This was the second of the company’s fuel cells to continue operating during hurricane conditions. Florida has been ravaged by two hurricanes in the past few weeks and faces yet another one. At the time this was published, the powerful hurricane Ivan was expected to make landfall late Wednesday or early Thursday and come ashore anywhere between northwestern Florida and Louisiana.
