Imagine your own guaranteed supply of electricity in a compact, quiet, self-contained package - it's
called the HomeGen 7000. This new energy system produces more power, and is more environmentally friendly,
more efficient and more reliable than ever. About the size of a refrigerator, the HomeGen 7000 provides
100% of a home's energy needs, plus runs on fuels (natural gas or propane) already delivered to your home.

The HomeGen 7000 produces electricity by combining the hydrogen contained in natural gas or
propane with oxygen in the air. The system has three major components:
- A fuel processor extracts the hydrogen from the gas or propane.
- A fuel cell changes the hydrogen to electricity.
- A power conditioner converts the fuel cell electricity to the type and quality of power that
you use today.
The HomeGen 7000 also produces almost no dangerous or harmful pollutants. Its major byproducts are heat
(used for hot water or home heating), water, and carbon dioxide (the same amount as a typical home
furnace). Although fuel cells are new to residential power generation, the technology has been around
for 150 years and used by NASA on board space missions for the past 30 years.
