ENGLEWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) - Millennium Reign Energy LLC, a company out of Englewood, demonstrated the ability to use hydrogen as a transportation fuel to General Motor representatives Saturday.
CEO Chris McWhinney envisioned a better way to provide an alternative fuel source for the average consumer. Over the past seven years, he and his team have refined a self-contained, fully automatic hydrogen generating station that they hope will one day become a standard in every home.
"Our mission is to provide each homeowner with the potential to become energy independent and immune to uncontrollable energy cost, global unrest, national disasters, and other events beyond their personal control," said McWhinney.
Energy is captured through solar panels and wind turbines. The energy is then used to generate electricity and once combined with water, hydrogen and oxygen are produced.
Hydrogen is what will run the future GM hydrogen powered fuel cell car.
Although this technology has been around for many years, MRE increased the efficiency levels and reduced the cost to make it a viable solution to an average consumers energy needs.
The hydrogen generating station will also reduce negative impacts on the environment.
