    11. 11. The benefits of SOFCs Include: Energy security: reduce oil consumption, cut oil imports, and increase the amount of the country’s available electricity supply. Reliability: achieve operating times in excess of 90% and power available 99.99% of the time. Low operating and maintenance cost: the efficiency of the SOFC system will drastically reduce the energy bill (mass production) and have lower maintenance costs than their alternatives. Choice of fuel: allow fuel selection: hydrogen may be extracted from natural gas, propane, butane, methanol or diesel fuel. 11 Copyright 2013-2014 Constant power production: generate power continuously.
