CAARNG photovoltaic fuel cell system

As part of energy-saving measures, the California Army National Guard has implemented a fuel cell system powered by photovoltaic panels. The CAARNG, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, designed these innovative hydrogen fuel cells to use a solar array to convert water into hydrogen gas through electrolysis. The array of panels above powers the fuel cells for a fire department.
