We had a visit form the department of energy, the Lt. Governor and the Governor of Connecticut in the past two weeks.

We make fuel cells, we could never compete against oil, coal or natural gas.

Yes we are the leader in fuel cell production with power plants all over the world but the disclaimer is this; without government subsidies the sales would virtually evaporate, we continue to cost down (30% by may last estimate) but still are not competitive.

Do these subsidies work? possibly, only in the respect that it has allowed us to make the product more efficient and cheaper with time.

The free market should always decide which fuel is the most efficent and cheapest so I have mixed feelings. (I neeed a job)

Would your company go out of business without free money from taxpayers?

I understand the spot you are in. It is easy to have principles when one doesn’t have to make tough choices.
