Telecom hybrid systems available from Cummins Power Generation reduce fuel consumption, carbon footprint and total cost of operation to power cellular base stations up to 70 percent. Cummins Power Generation incorporates networked energy management technology from Heliocentris into a hybrid power system designed to provide power for cellular base stations and other telecom applications.
The Cummins telecom hybrid power system will employ a diesel generator set, storage batteries and networked energy management technology to supply power to cellular sites. Combining generator sets that are specifically designed for telecommunication cellular sites with a hybrid system that intelligently cycles storage batteries and can seamlessly integrate additional power components (such as photovoltaic modules, wind turbines and fuel cells) ensures a continuing reduction of fuel consumption and operating and maintenance costs. The resulting hybrid system reduces the operational expense for cell sites and also reduces the carbon footprint to power a cell site. cumminspower.com
