Any Fuel, Any Size, Any Load, Anywhere
The Mainspring Linear Generator delivers unmatched flexibility for the grid transition, including the ability to switch between fuels like hydrogen, ammonia, and biogas with software, and quickly track and firm renewables with its full dispatchability. Whether deployed as a single unit or as a grid-scale array, the technology is easy to permit and interconnect in any jurisdiction, allowing for broad impact across a wide range of use cases on both sides of the meter.
Markets & Applications
The unmatched combination of low cost and low emissions combined with high efficiency, fuel flexibility, and full dispatchability make the Mainspring Linear Generator the ideal choice for customers looking for clean and reliable power for the zero carbon future.
Mainspring products and inverters are UL listed, streamlining the permitting and interconnection processes while firming intermittent renewables.
Commercial & Industrial
Mainspring Linear Generators are designed to flexibly operate to meet your cost savings, sustainability, and resiliency needs. Full dispatchability and dynamic fuel switching enable you to meet your goals today and in the future.
- 24/7 load-following, primary power operation when needed
- Reliable power even when the grid is down
- Economic dispatch based on tariff or real-time pricing
- Peak-load shaving for demand charge reduction
- Onsite solar and energy storage firming
For utilities, municipalities, and power project developers, Mainspring’s Linear Generators are movable and offer utility-scale performance for any project size. The low emissions, modularity, and fuel flexibility of Mainspring’s products reduces the permitting and stranded asset risks associated with large generation and transmission projects.

Mainspring is proud to work with global leaders. A selection of our customers includes:
We currently offer customers two purchase options to realize the benefits of Mainspring’s Linear Generators — direct capital purchase or a financed solution such as an Energy Services Agreement / Power Purchase Agreement. Both options come with a Mainspring-supported Maintenance Agreement.
Customers looking to maximize cost savings and return on investment can directly purchase and own a Linear Generator. Mainspring works with customers to facilitate the installation, providing installation support or delivering full turn-key projects.
Energy Services Agreement
Mainspring has partnered with NextEra Energy Resources to provide customers a financed option for turn-key linear generator projects. With this option, customers can realize immediate benefits of Mainspring systems with no upfront costs.
