Tokyo Gas and Panasonic have announced the latest Ene-Farm home fuel cell which will be on sale in April 2013. The new model will be on sale for less than ¥2 million ($22,600, including tax, but excluding installation), which is less than its current model.

Improvements in the unit include a reduction in the overall size, which will facilitate installation in smaller houses. This has been achieved through the use of fewer components, and the separation of the backup heat source, allows for more flexibility during installation.
