Photovoltaic and Fuel Cell
Interest in creating sustainable power is in our DNA. In 1996 before we called ourselves CIC, the management team built its first solar powered cell site. This was a one of a kind project at the time, in the outskirts of San Diego, California. The solar system made economic sense compared to the multi-million dollar power line extension required. Over the years photovoltaic (PV) panels efficiency ratings have steadily climbed. Solar and Fuel Cell system's native DC power is ideally suited to remote microwave backhaul sites. CIC offers design and build services for photovoltaic and fuel cell systems.
CIC has partnered with Plug Power the premier manufacturer of Fuel Cells designed for the wireless telecommunications industry. In 2015 Plug Power acquired ReliOn the fuel cell manufacturer dedicated to efficient and reliable fuel cells for wireless sites.
