Danbury-based company to install fuel cell plant at U.S. sub base

Danbury-based FuelCell Energy has received a letter of intent from the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative, on behalf of its municipal owners, for a long-term supply of 7.4 megawatts of power. 


FuelCell officials say this will provide market-based on-site power for a strategic U.S. military facility served by Groton Utilities, a CMEEC owner.  FuelCell says this project structure enables CMEEC to serve the U.S. Submarine Base with clean and predictable on-site power that enhances resiliency, while avoiding a capital investment in the power plant through the use of a power purchase agreement.


Contract execution is expected by summer 2017. 


CMEEC is owned by six municipal utilities: Groton Utilities, Norwich Public Utilities, Jewett City Department of Public Utilities, Bozrah Light and Power, South Norwalk Electric and Water and Norwalk Third Taxing District.
