Since 2014, The Home Depot has utilized fuel cells for on-site electricity production at approximately 140 stores, and even forklifts in our distribution centers.

They offer a reliable alternative to standard electricity generation that provides nearly 90 percent of a store’s power while reducing carbon emissions and saving water. The use of fuel cells is expected to grow well into 2017.
