Yet----FACT---> The government asked for a workable test model to study/review and were not sent one. The demonstration that was scheduled some time age for the government was canceled/postponed and never came about. Only Bob and his crew know what happened. Even tho they claimed they did several demos in Florida for a non governmental--non major/major investor whatever. 3)UL certification is currently authorized with fuel cell products Bloom is certified and so is several-others so I'm not sure where that statement came from. but who knows??? 4) I'm pulling for the success of this company , However that fireside chat did little to nothing to dissuade my anxieties about this companies legitimacy. So lets all hold our breath; and wish for the best.
