Centurylink Installs Fuel Cells In Irvine

Telecommunications company CenturyLink said this week that it has made the first deployment of Bloom Energy's fuel cells in a multi-tenant data center in Southern California, as a part of the company's sustainability efforts. Bloom Energy's equipment converts natural ga and air to generate energy, and offers up cleaner--and usually, cheaper--onsite energy generation for companies. The companies said that the use of fuel cells is a much cleaner way to generate electricity, and also reduce water use.
