Apparently it already does make sense, at least to some companies in some situations.  Ebay is using Bloom Energy fuel cells to power its new data center in Utah.  I'm certain that Ebay did cost benefit analysis, and wouldn't have committed to this if it didn't make financial sense in addition to any environmental benefits.
