|More Solar Powered Cell Towers Are Needed|
Most cell phone carrier networks require batteries and diesel-powered generators as sources of backup power for cell phone towers. These towers also require primary power in areas that are often remote. This is one of the reasons that their are millions of cell phone dead zones throughout the World and the United States. Fuel cells from companies like Altergy, Bloom Energy, P21 are have relatively low maintenance and have few moving parts for maintenance. They can also provide power in areas that are remote and thus are not attached to the grid. The fuel cells could be a major factor in urban and remote locations that are often neglected by carriers for obvious reasons. Carrier only focus on locations to improve coverage where they have a critical mass of customers. So is it right to ignore these locations entirely if you can't feasibly put up a cell phone tower to service the location? This is one of the many reasons that the US government wants to encourage and often fund free wireless broadband.
