GE MicroGen is currently developing a global distribution network to deliver GE HomeGen 7000
fuel cell systems to the residential market. Analysts estimate that fuel cells will become at
least a billion-dollar market within the decade, and distributors will profit from service,
installation, equipment and fuel sales. Some of the qualities of HomeGen 7000 distributors
are listed below, followed by the opportunities available.
- Strength demonstrated by brand, local sales presence, etc.
- Service capability (e.g., installation, maintenance, and emergency service)
- Fuel delivery capability
- Commitment demonstrated by willingness to invest in marketing, pre-commercial unit testing /
demonstration, and commercial unit purchase volume
Primary Distributorship: Primary distributorships are the only distribution contracts
directly negotiated with GE MicroGen. Our primary distributors are generally electric utilities,
combined gas and electric companies, and natural gas distributors. Primary distribution
responsibilities include sales, installation and service of the GE HomeGen 7000.
Secondary Distribution: Companies that specialize in an aspect of distribution, such as
service, installation, or sales may be contracted as local secondary distributors for the
commercial fuel cell system. Secondary distribution contracts are negotiated through the primary
distributors partnered with GE MicroGen. Although GE MicroGen does not contract secondary
distributors, we will make company information from the interest form below available to current
and future primary distributors. If there is an opportunity in your area, the current or future
primary distributor may contact you.
