We compare the costs and benefits of using two types of fuel cell power generation systems versus Southern California Edison to provide the base electricity load for the Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow Maintenance Center. The results indicate that the break-even point is not likely to occur before year eight and under certain conditions may not occur at all during the 20-year program life cycle. The results do indicate a pollution reduction from fuel cells, but the reduction would not have any measurable impact on the nation's air quality.
