Plug Power logoPlug Power executed a multi-year contract with SouthernLINC Wireless, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the utility Southern Company.

Plug Power will provide its ReliOn integrated backup power fuel cell systems to SouthernLINC Wireless for use in its wireless network, which supports Southern Company’s communication needs and provides a wireless communications network for customers.

SouthernLINC Wireless anticipates deploying as many as 500 new LTE sites utilizing the Plug Power ReliOn system, which includes fuel cell systems and bulk refillable hydrogen storage, DC plant rectifiers and distribution, battery technology and space for radio equipment, in an environmentally-hardened outdoor cabinet.

Plug Power’s hydrogen fuel cell-based backup power system supplements batteries and replaces diesel-fuel generators used for backup power applications.
