Hybrid technology for off-grid 
telecom towers


Telecom towers provide a vital link for the world’s population who live off-grid. Over a million telecom towers worldwide rely on diesel generators for energy. Planetary Power’s HyGen hybrid generator offers a sustainable, cost-effective and reliable alternative.

1.2 million off-grid and bad-grid towers by 2020

90% of off-grid and bad-grid towers rely on diesel generators

$19 billion in cost and 45 million tons of CO2 by 2020


Proven Cost Savings
More than one million cell towers lack access to a reliable power grid, and mobile operators are expanding into increasingly remote areas. HyGen is proven to reduce operating costs by more than 60% at these sites when compared with the use of conventional diesel generators.

  • Reduces fuel consumption by 60%
  • Pays for itself in 12-18 months
  • Easily connect renewable energy for greater savings
  • Secured against fuel and equipment theft
