cells are a good idea, but aren't quite there yet, at least for the guy on the street.
The big issues with fuel cells are:
- upfront cost
- you need a source of hydrogen
Fuel cells can produce as much electricity as one would need, at a cost.
The stacks will deteriorate as time goes by, which means you have to pretty much buy new fuel cells, big$$. The longest I've heard a stack last is 5 years, that isn't a long time considering the cost. Maybe they last longer now, however I doubt much longer.
And those little electric
motors for the cooling
fans, as shown in the picture above, how long do think they will last in a marine environment
