Plug Power Inc.

The continuous run GenSys(R) prime power fuel cell systems are being deployed into rural India and will replace diesel generators at remote telecommunication sites.

PLUG shares are now up 20% at $1.10 on over 2 million shares as of 10:17 AM EST.  The headline hit at 10:14 AM EST so this is a sudden burst move as the average daily volume here is only about 600,000 shares.  The 52-week trading range is $0.64 to $1.55 and the market cap is a mere $145 million.
