Fuel Cell Technologies Signs California Contract

February 16, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Fuel Cell Technologies Corp. (FCT, Kingston, ON) announced that it has signed a contract for 10 residential fuel cell units for California's South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD). The contract is scheduled to run through the end of 2005, during which time FCT will install, then operate and maintain the residential fuel cells for two years.

In May 2002, the AQMD announced that on the basis of an international competition it had chosen FCT as the company with which it would negotiate a contract to supply 10 fuel cell power systems for the first California clean air demonstration of fuel cells in homes. AQMD and FCT have now signed the contract, with the first deliveries scheduled for later this year.
