Brunnthal, Germany-based SFC Energy AG and the RV Care Network announced today (Jan. 20) their collaboration to distribute SFC’s EFOY eco-friendly fuel-cell generators through RV Care retailers throughout Canada.
The announcement was made this morning (Jan. 20) during the opening day of the Toronto RV Show & Extravaganza at the Toronto Congress Center.
EFOY fuel cell generators are fully automated battery chargers, which start up when the battery voltage is low, charge and then revert to standby mode when the battery is fully charged. This portable energy source supplies enough electricity to operate the RV’s electric appliances off-grid for several weeks. SFC Energy has sold 20,000 fuel cells in Europe, where 50 European RV manufacturers have provided the EFOY as an energy source to its customers for years.
“We are pleased to be able to provide our customers with an ideal energy supply for their RVs, which is environmentally friendly and available 24 hours a day,” said Earl Mannings, vice president of the 54-dealer RV Care network. “They are now able to self-sufficiently stay in the great outdoors for several weeks, without having to worry about a sufficient energy supply.”
Designed exclusively for recreation and leisure activities, the EFOY fuel cell family comes in five models offering charging capacity ranging from 600 to 2,160 watt hours per day. In Canada, the EFOY fuel cell generator is available in two models with a loading capacity of up to 2.2 kWh per day. The EFOY fuel cartridges, with five liters (1.32 gallons) or 10 liters (2.64 gallons) of fuel, will also be offered by RV Care retailers.
“We are very proud to introduce our EFOY fuel cell generator, a standard in European RV industry, in Canada,” said Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. “Enjoying the great nature of Canada with silent and emission-free electricity on board – this is how the EFOY fuel cell generator enhances the travel experience. We are particularly pleased about our collaboration with RV Care, an excellent partner with a nation-wide retail network, to cover the high demand in the Canadian market.”
Visitors to the Toronto RV Show & Extravaganza, which runs through Sunday (Jan. 23) can see the EFOY fuel cell generator at the Parts Superstore exhibit (area B, booth B-3).
