About NPWZ

NPWZ Neah Power was founded in 1999, but CTO/founder Leroy Ohlsen had been thinking about alternative energy for years.
Inspired by a Discovery Channel science program on fuel cells and their potential, Leroy began to read and absorb the history and the science of fuel cells. Upon completing his chemistry degree from the University of Washington, he decided, along with fellow founder Michael Fabian, to start a company to pursue his dream of a “superior, longer-lasting energy source.”
NPWZ Neah Power has grown to include a world-class engineering and scientific team from around the world. Prototype development continues and the company expects to make its energy products commercially available in 2012.
