Arizona Company reduces cost of making green hydrogen from water

February 7, 2021 |

In Arizona, United Energies Development Corporation, a wholesale industrial retail gas producer and alternative energy company, has broken the cost barrier to making “Green” Hydrogen from electrolyzing water. This will be the only hydrogen generation company in the world using this process, according to their press release.

United Energies Development Corporation is constructing the patented Photovoltaic and Electrolyzer hybrid facility using classified technology originally designed for NASA. This patented and secured method for making “Green” Hydrogen and Oxygen gas in large scale from groundwater and sunlight is the next stage in the evolution of the Hydrogen industry.

Denis Luz, CEO, explains their mission statement, “We are a Hydrogen generation company, which other people do, but it is our process that separates us from our competition. Most commonly Hydrogen is made from Natural gas, but it is costly, dirty, and it is filled with Sulfur that contaminates fuel cells. Instead, we start with ultra-pure water, turning it into 99.9998% pure Hydrogen and Oxygen gas using specialized equipment and a large Photo-Voltaic Array. Today all Hydrogen comes into Arizona by tanker or rail from California, where the nearest Hydrogen generation facilities are located. We are able to eliminate that transport cost, bringing H2 production costs to $1.33 Kg/H2 at an electricity cost of $.05 kWh. Our equipment uses only 1.2 MW/hr to make 1,077 Kg/H2 a day.  No other companies’ technology come close, especially the PEM systems that use large power to pressurize the water.”

United Energies will be the only plant using this equipment with patented technology, that weakens the molecular bond of water before splitting it. By reducing the energy of the water itself to near Zero, an electrical charge can separate it with lower input power, utilizing alternative sources such as wind, tidal, or in this case solar, lowering the cost of production.  United Energies will store both solar and off-peak electricity at night, and sell it back to the utility when it is required by regulatory agencies or when they are being strained to capacity.
